[sfp07] Transient – Nothing is everything when everything is nothing

Soft Phase netlabel:

Transient is Carl Martin, american musician with netlabel discography second to none. The list of releases he have been putting out on his own Noisy Vagabond outlet and most of the big netlabels is simply quite staggering, not to mention the overall playing time is over 30 hours! It is not easy to categorize his output, the styles vary from beatless ambient to bottom heavy dancefloor rollers, everything in between. So in case he is a new discovery to you, head over to his website and be amazed of the versatility of music, almost all of it to be downloaded for free. “Nothing is everything when everything is nothing” being the lengthy title for this album, it’s slightly more beat-oriented Soft Phase release, while still preserving the importance of melodies and harmony. The album carries influences from floaty atmospheric ambient, dub, some melancholic piano, all accompanied with some cleverly programmed beats. Finally, some selected words of wisdom from the man himself:

“The record is a furthering of my approach to casually inform the listener of the potential positive life. For me this has always been the purpose of musical creation, to spread good vibrations to the masses and to fight fear and hate. Do not despair!”
