"TransIterate - Review You"

"Fans of ambient experimental music and field sounds will appreciate the musical intent on trans iterate." - Review You

"Aerial Noise review for TransIterate"

"Strikingly crafted with a screenplay quality to it, 'TransIterate' gradually begins to put all of your plights away whilst equally putting its concept up there amongst the elite and up n' coming best." - Aerial Noise

"Indie Music Digest review for TransIterate"

"Overall this release from Yellowline has some very impressive moments indeed. Transiterate is a very dynamic & interesting catalogue of music. The music is highly original & not so easily pinned down during the first go around. It's strong suit is the amazing musical depth, rich sonic layering, & Industrial-type beats & sampling." - Indie Music Review


TransIterate - 2010



It is 1993, Brian Ackley is finding out that the rest of Seattle is much less keen on bands
oriented towards The Church, The Go Betweens, and Love and Rockets now that grunge has
offically consumed the national media. A roommate who becomes a band mate introduces him
to the Sub Pop release of “Prison” - Steve Fisk’s music under Steven Jesse Bernstein’s spoken
word. Over the next year & a half he becomes hooked on the textures of Curve, the spaced
out grooves of pre- Urban Hymns The Verve, the psilocybin-rich grooves of Sky Cries Mary,
and groups outside of Seattle making “ambient” music like Future Sound of London, Spacetime
Continuum, Single Cell Orchestra.
Brian has been a full time member of Seattle group Half Light since ~ 2004, and continues
to create & perform with this great crew of musicians. Rock music is a lot of fun to play live
- but it turns out it’s also highly rewarding to write tracks that are best vibed on via a properly
calibrated head-space & a good pair of headphones. After countless dead-end “side projects”
meant to focus on pursuing such a goal, YellowLine Music was conceived as a playground to
pursue these types of experiments. For the more ambient and less group-oriented ideas, the
album “TransIterate” has been coalescing over the last 3 years bit by bit.
Now that the debut album has been realized, future efforts will include collaborations with
past band-mates & musical peers, and when the opportunity arises - indie film soundtrack
