about

SSDL1718 transitory


release date: 19960617 label: pureambient

the second dave stafford release from 1996, "transitory" breaks new ground in terms of approaches to looping and ambient.

here is a reproduction of the original CD liner notes:


the music on this album was created with one electric guitar, a discman, and a custom-designed long digital delay/looping system and pedalboard. the primary sound source is the energy bow, a device which is manually placed over the strings of the guitar to create an endless sustained tone. other incidental sounds were introduced into the loops as appropriate.

the first five tracks were conceived and executed over a period of two months, the second five over a period of two days. this contrast in creation time was the transition point for completion of the project. "round" was created as a bonus track for the compact disc release of the album.

"...a feeling of quiet in these transitory times"


the phonographic copyright in these performances / compositions is operated by studio seventeen productions / pureambient on behalf of the artist, with whom it resides. studio seventeen productions / pureambient accepts no reason for artists to give away such copyright interests in their work by virtue of a "common practice" which is out of tune with the times, was always questionable and is now indefensible.
