operand – transient series [music]


this is a music project i undertook, using my own operand software [that i also update regularly and sell] and creating a series of albums, a series which i call the ‘transient series’

each album was made with operand [and updated/beta versions], my electric guitar and my own personal library of recorded sounds i have been making for some years now.
there are three albums which are available for purchase, and also tracks which are available to listen to on soundcloud.

the three albums that were recorded:
• transient actions – nine tracks [fifty-seven minutes]
• transient responses – nine tracks [fifty-three minutes]
• transient presence – nine tracks [fifty-three minutes]

this was a great project to do, to let my hair down and really make music that i had lurking around in my head that i needed to get out and record.
i am very happy with the outcome of all the tracks, and hope that everyone enjoys them as much as i did making them

every bit of the way. using my operand program [built with max 5], which i build and sell online.
everything is max in this project. there is an external reverb for the guitar, but just used for ambient guitar effects, also using the built in operand effects to further the sound.

some nice sounds, but it would much enhance the musicial (!) listening if the sounds were arranged into some exciting structure.

@xh90: A "Telelogical" music requirement? This is not popular amoung academic music producers these days: my structured forms (kinda symphonic) were rejected some 15 y.o. as being "manipulative" music…"oh, the horror!! " :-)
