SYR6: Koncertas Stan Brakhage prisiminimui is an EP credited to "Sonic Youth su Tim Barnes". It was released on December 6, 2005, and is the sixth in a series of experimental releases put out on Sonic Youth's own SYR label.

Background[edit]

SYR6 is a live recording of an April 13, 2003 benefit show for the Anthology Film Archives. The band, joined by percussionist Tim Barnes, played along with silent Stan Brakhage films.

SYR6 follows the tradition of having the liner notes in the SYR series written in foreign language titles, in this case in Lithuanian. The meaning of the title is "a concert in memory of Stan Brakhage". The title and liner notes were translated by Lithuanian filmmaker Jonas Mekas.

SYR6 is the first in the SYR series to receive no release on vinyl.
