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.
Release Text (Dusted Wax Kingdom):
This is the special remastered edition of “Symphony Of Curves” EP by Transient (originally self-released back in 2010). A sample-heavy trip into deep downtempo dimensions and a tribute to the music of the 30’s to the early 70’s. Released as MP3 in 2010 on noisyvagabond, Re-Issued and Re-mastered by VPD on Dusted Wax Kingdom in 2013.
Having taken a break to explore some new projects (most notably beat.dowsing and fascinating earthbound objects), I return from a long hiatus with the first material as transient in over 2 years. Here is the beginning of a series which might be the spiritual successor to the ‘palm cuts’ releases housed here under the noisyvagabond label. All the music was made in the forest and powered largely by solar.
