Ian Boddy – As Above So Below
LP/CD/DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, DiN, 2016


It seems to me things have come to rest and return to a harmonic state on the Ian Boddy’s rather neo-classical oriented, symphonic infused “As Above so Below”.

The smooth swirling electronic music structures featured on the 39-minute/6-track album all carry a cinematic, reflective, organic-infused and library-music kind of mood/feel while evolving spaciously and gentle overall. Besides that one can’t miss a sense of density roaming in the methodologically paced, analogue-spiced music with few piano parts delivering certain melody along some atmospheres airing undeniable slices of darkness. I for one feel the emotive, vintage-sequenced “The Thaumaturge” makes a highlight.

Overall, I’ve experienced “As Above so Below” as a meticulously constructed sonic travelogue with various melancholic undercurrents (displayed profoundly on the last track “One Day”) and various tasty classic Berlin School sensitivities.
