“Meridian” is the third collaborative project between DiN label boss Ian Boddy & renowned Norwegian composer & guitarist Erik Wøllo. Both Boddy & Wøllo are prolific composers and they bring their wealth of experience to bear on this sophisticated, cinematic release. Playing like a travelogue to an undiscovered land the album opens in suitably haunting fashion with “Uncharted” with it’s fog horn effects shrouded in mist. The next two tracks then emerge from this atmosphere and create what will be the template for this album, a pair of uptempo, melodic pieces interspersed with reflective, slow ambient interludes…

In September 2009 Ian Boddy & Markus Reuter released their third DiN collaboration Dervish (which proved to be their most adventurous and experimental release to date. Pushing the envelope sonically from what many might have expected from these two talented but very different musicians they employed a wide range of guest musicians to create an incredible mix of tone colours. Pat Mastelotto the current drummer with King Crimson featured on four of the tracks whilst a combination of string quartet and recorders added to the unusual instrumentation on display on Dervish. The inspiration for this album was the musical theories of 20th Century composer Olivier Messiaen…

Many consider Berlin to be the birthplace of the 1970's electronic music movement that has proved so influential to the development of a myriad of electronica musicians, both past and present. So when Boddy got the opportunity to play an experimental set at the Electricity series of concerts held in the Lichtblick-Kino in this famous city, he jumped at the chance.
His musical heritage is shaped very much by the analogue modular synthesisers available to him in the late 70's, when he first started to compose and release music…

"Strange Attractors" is a milestone for the DiN label in that it is the 50th album release (38 physical + 12 digital). As such it is only fitting that it should be by the driving force behind DiN, label boss Ian Boddy. Recorded live in April 2011 at the Awakenings series of electronic music concerts the album showcases Boddy at the top of his game. Employing almost exclusively analogue sound sources he crafts a seamless blend of electronica spanning 76 minutes of sonic exploration.

In October 2012, Boddy made his sixth pilgrimage across the North Atlantic to Philadelphia to play at the Gatherings concert series. As with his previous solo shows (as well as his last visit performing with Mark Shreeve as ARC), Boddy also performed a show on air for Stars End. This legendary radio show is hosted by Chuck van Zyl, who is also the organiser of the Gatherings concert series. Performed in the early hours of Sunday morning in the WXPN studio, in front of a small group of friends and helpers, this intimate setting is the perfect opportunity to play a more reflective and introspective set than the previous evenings show at the Gatherings…

In the autumn of 2012, Ian Boddy played two concerts on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The first was his fourth solo appearance at the Gatherings, hosted by Chuck van Zyl, in Philadelphia, USA. Four weeks later he then played at the Capstone Theatre in Liverpool, UK. There might have been over 5,000 kilometres separating the two gigs but Boddy played the same set at each and both his performances were multi-track recorded. Back in his studio Boddy then proceeded to edit the audio down to a single CD length and to merge the two shows to create a composite concert. Nothing additional was added, but rather, a careful mix was made of the best sections from each performance to create a unique album that was true to the spirit of the original concerts…

Frontiers is a musical travelogue through lands unknown although the sonic climate is very much influenced by the two musicians shared Northern European heritage. The album is book-ended by Vista & Ascension which feature Wøllo's panoramic chordal backdrops over which Boddy plays his now famous "Ondes Martenot" glissando synth lead lines. Between these two beautiful, haunting tracks the album is built around four sequencer driven pieces, each gaining in intensity and culminating in the intense penultimate title track Frontiers. These are interspersed with more abstract and atmospheric interludes, featuring field recordings the two artists have made in their own personal travels through their respective native landscapes…

Ian Boddy, DiN label boss, is one of the best known names in UK electronic music. He has been releasing music for over 35 years as well as playing concerts, creating sound design and composing library music. Yet despite this long musical career he still manages to surprise his listeners and Tone Science could represent his most experimental album to date. For this release Boddy has returned to his musical roots where experimentation was the name of the game.
He has always been fascinated by the random qualities of natural phenomena such as streams, waves, the leaves on a tree or the clouds in the sky…

Ian Boddy & Erik Wøllo first worked together on the Frontiers album released in 2012 as a limited edition CD. This musical travelogue through imaginary northern landscapes garnered high praise for it’s shifting moods and panoramic soundscapes. The duo were invited to play their inaugural concert at the Electronic Circus Festival V held in Guetersloh, Germany in the autumn of 2012. The organisers requested that Boddy & Wøllo performed as much of the Frontiers album as possible and indeed tracks 4 to 12 are taken from that release albeit interpreted for a live concert setting. A further 30 minutes of all new material was also composed and this comprises the opening 3 tracks of the concert…

Ian Boddy, DiN label boss, has never been a musician to rest on his laurels. After the totally analogue, experimental "Tone Science" he now moves onto fresh sonic pastures with his new solo album "As Above So Below". Boddy has always liked to play around with genres, mixing and matching styles to suit his current frame of mind. On "As Above So Below" he effortlessly combines ambient, classical & electronic music into a seamless, intoxicating sonic landscape. Boddy has been heavily involved in composing library music for many years that feature in TV, films and documentaries and he brings this filmic quality to bear on this suite of six tracks.
