Carl Martin aka Transient has been producing electronic music since the early 1990’s. At that time he was introduced to tracking software through the local BBS scene and began creating music on his trusty 286. Through the years he continued to use trackers (modedit, screamtracker 3, impulse tracker, modplug tracker) as his basic composition tool, eventually settling on Renoise. He has released music for many labels throughout the world, and is best known for a wide range of eclectic releases put out by various entities within the netlabel community. His discography which includes over 50 records, 500+ tracks, and spans more than 40 hours, has received millions of downloads and streams. Transient’s works are eclectic and come in a multitude of genres (trip-hop, downtempo, idm, glitch, ambient, electro, techno, and classical to name a few.) In recent years, he’s refocused his efforts on live music, joined by a drummer in the duo Split Phase and has branched out into various solo side projects (beat.dowsing, quiestest, etc.). These days he’s using his Transient moniker appropriately for one of his loves, the art of mobile music making via cell phones, pda’s, and portable gaming systems.
