Biography

Transparent Sound has had various different members over the years, but is essentially a musical collaboration between Martin Brown and Orson Bramley, who met and started writing music together in their home town of Bognor Regis, UK back in 1994. Along with co-founder Steve Penfold they set about creating a very distinctive electro influenced sound. The first release on Transparent Sound Recordings, Meltdown Ride (or the yellow one as it has become known) came out the following year. A flurry of 12”s came out over the next few years under various different guises, as the guys experimented with different sounds & styles, but the main theme continued to be electro, with further releases on the TS imprint.

This chapter in their history closed after The Cure asked them to re-mix their 1997 single ‘Wrong Number’. Steve left the project to pursue his scaffolding career, while Orson & Martin continued recording.

During the summer of 1998 an ‘analogue only’ project was started with old friends Scape 1 and Tim Harris (Breakspoll, Dangerous Frontiers, Dark on tuesdays), another two of Bognors electro elite. Using nothing but an 808, a couple of 101s, a basic 8 channel desk, minimal effects and a handful of ‘crappy old keyboards’such classics as Freaks Frequency and Down in Miami were created in a series of live session recordings.
