      Ian Boddy's music consistently sounds fresh; seeming to exist in
      an eternal now. Continually coming up with new ideas and
      approaches on each release he is involved in, Boddy is always
      redefining his relationship with Electronic Music. His innovative
      contributions to Electronica retain fragments of a time gone by
      and make for a daring and passionate vision of a present
      constantly slipping into the past. His album ELEMENTAL (52'11")
      possesses more than just the tricks and technology of its time.
      Its eight songs of innocence and experience cast a wide
      resonance - one that speaks from the past to the present. This
      work emits a significant amount of energy by way of swinging
      drum grooves and throbbing electro-rhythms. Boddy's deliberate
      and dramatic pacing construct these forms gradually, adding
      layer upon layer of enticing arpeggios and coarse-grained loops
      to a point just prior to where production and tech power would
      outshine the subtle emotion of this disc. Separating the power
      tracks are ambient stretches of stark intimacy. In these regions
      Boddy sets an altogether different mood. Complex synth
      modulations and uniquely manipulated sound samples lead the
      listener to a cool introspective space. From these chilled out
      regions the listener may notice the many peaks and
      depressions on ELEMENTAL, and how Boddy, using a keen
      musical sense fueled by pure curiosity, ably navigates.

      Tune in to STAR'S END this weekend for music from Ian Boddy's
      forthcoming album ELEMENTAL.

      ELEMENTAL will be released in Philadelphia when Ian Boddy
      performs at The Gatherings Concert Series on 30 September
      2006.
