As I’m about to depart for a few months of backpacking (to work on white blazes 2) I decided it was only appropriate to start things off with a clean slate. So I’ve organized the few random tracks I’ve got floating around in unreleased states into the ep you have before you. A smattering of downtempo and more upbeat electronics for your listening pleasures. Dedicated to my little friend and constant companion Sydney the cockatoo who’s handsome face graces the cover.
Long-form straight techno tune. Plays a bit like a dj mix. Made with Sunvox on various beaches and tweaked further at home on the PC. Certainly my longest track to date. Enjoy!
Continuing on in the tradition of the ‘quiet trilogy’ released as transient on noisyvagabond (quiet, quieter, quietest) I present here the first release as ‘quietest’ which will be the host for my ambient and relaxing output going forward. Here is six tracks composed in 2011-2015.
Originally released via trmbl music. Since the original release has been pulled i’m re-releasing this one on my noisyvagabond label with a couple of bonus tunes (an unreleased beat.dowsing tune, and a billie.dowsing tune which is a tribute to one of my faves Billie Holiday) Enjoy!\
Release Notes (Bumpfoot):
Transient is one of very important musician to netlabel scene. He has appeared in many labels (Monotonik, Miasmah, Camomille, Kikapu, Laverna, Observatory Online, Ogredung, One, Phonocake, Soft Phase, etc.) with many releases, along with his own label Noisy Vagabond. Harmonic Defiance is another moniker of Transient for techno / dance oriented stuff. Here comes the first release under this name.
transient – apathy 13 EP [qvr001] 2015
released in Apathy 13 artpack under the Quiver label (Apathy was an ANSI art group I was involved with in the BBS days, this pack is a reunion/tribute pack. Quiver was the music subdivision of Apathy that I ran. This is the first and quite possible the last official EP length release for Quiver ie QVR001.)
Over 30 artists participated in the release. Download/view the pack which includes the Apathy 13 EP here.
Release Text (Phonocake):Good bye, old self,
welcome to the new century,
no matter, when it begins.
The power lies inside the calm. And beat.dowsing again enjoys us with his new album, full of sunny n peacy tracks that warm the winterly hemisphere and properly heat up the current summer hemisphere.
Phonocake is honored to bring this full length downbeat electronica release by beat.dowsing a.k.a Transient, one of the first musicians who were active in the world wide web.
And big up n thanks goes out to Kaylee Kopas for providing the great piece of visual art.K00PS.tumblr.com/
Release Text (Phonocake):
Music, made deep in the woods.
The big rabbit invites you,
to listen to the sounds of the creek,
the trees and the birds.
This release is impressive in some ways. You see the creek depicted on the cover artwork? It’s one of the artists favorite spots to chill and to create music. He produced all the music in the forest using a tablet computer, making most of the tracks in the stunning forests around the albums namesake ‘Chiquesalunga Creek’.
And the artist is none other than one of the root free Netaudio stars online – Transient. Having released last year on Phonocake as Beat.Dowsing we now connected again to bring you his new seven track album under his original moniker.
And that’s not all! You are invited to remix and explore the tracks! — the source files which can be opened in Sunvox are included – a first for Phonocake. Please send any remixes to the artist and to us. Contact and instructions are included in the Source files directory.
