You’ve reached noisyvagabond! The home of c. ‘transient‘ martin (aka beat.dowsing, fascinating earthbound objects, harmonic defiance, quietest, and some others.) I’ve been delivering strange and eclectic electronic music  since 1992 which you will find within. Almost my entire catalog can be had for free download (now over 500 tracks) released for the most part with Creative Commons licenses. If you like what I do and are interested in supporting a true independent musician please consider picking up my discography which includes my entire catalog of music as well as a bunch of fun extras like my artwork and software! Just hit the picture below for more information. Thanks for visiting. –Carl
