Ian Boddy :: Tone Science (DiN)

The album contains a succinct collection of undulating and abstract soundscapes with a rather experimental and anti melodious shape, also reminiscent to some sort of avant garde and radical cosmic minimalism from Conrad Schnitzler.

Ian Boddy :: Tone Science (DiN)

Founding father of the British electronic school of space music Ian Boddy is back to the control of his DiN laboratory to offer to the audience a new album whose tracks have been designed and finalized between March 2013 and January 2014. Ian Boddy demonstrates once more the plural aspect of his musical signature, this time with materials which encompass the world of electro-acoustic improvisations with retro-futurist electronic sound moves (imagine a meeting between Cecil Leuter or Mort Garson’s vintage Sci-fi experiments and researches in new electro-acoustic music). However there is nothing academic, formalist or intellectual here.

The music has its conceptual tendency but the general mood and ambiences are made of sympathetic and non-directional gestural electronic movements, diverse computerized manipulations and strange analog FX programs. The album contains a succinct collection of undulating and abstract soundscapes with a rather experimental and anti melodious shape, also reminiscent to some sort of avant garde and radical cosmic minimalism from Conrad Schnitzler in his Blau, Rot and Gold albums. Tone Science consists mostly of unusual experimentations on pitches, electronic waves and elasticity in a quite caustic-futuristic style. A real curiosity.

Tone Science is available on DiN.
