Ian Boddy – As Above So Below


Release data: 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…

Ian Boddy – Slide


Release data: Ian Boddy – Slide CD/DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, DiN, 2008 The electronic music found on the upbeat, abstract-oriented “Slide” is pure and definitely of analogue origin, featuring the usual gear-suspects like the massive Roland 100-M and Doepfler A-100 systems.

Ian Boddy – Chiasmata


Release data: Ian Boddy – Chiasmata CD/DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, DiN, 2004 “Chiasmata” contains the music played live-in-concert at the planetarium of Leicester’s National Space Centre, UK, in November 2003.
