UK synthesist Ian Boddy returns to The Gatherings Concert Series and the remarkable setting of St. Mary’s Hamilton Village for a rare stateside concert performance.
Emerging from the post Tangerine Dream/Cosmic Music generation, Ian Boddy has carved out a position as a distinctive independent composer and performer. A consistent presence on the European electronic music scene since the late 1970s, this British based sonic explorer established the DiN label in 1999; a venture which allows Boddy to collaborate with a variety of musicians as well as to release his own material as well as that of other innovative artists. Thus far DiN has released dozens of CDs (with Boddy involved musically in many) and achieved widespread critical acclaim for its adventurous outlook at the world of electronic music.
Ian Boddy provides the listener with a rich atmosphere of original timbres and floating soundscapes. He is one of the few of his generation to have successfully integrated electronic music styles as diverse as seventies-style sequencer structures, melodic neo-classicism and the post-rave Modern Ambient style.
After many years of playing at live events Ian Boddy’s idea behind performing concerts is now about bringing his meticulous studio sensibilities out before the public, where the energy of the performance space and the spontaneity of the moment may move his already advanced skills into a higher realm. It is also a wonderful way for Boddy to come into contact with people who love Spacemusic, and feel their support and enthusiasm. His upcoming show in Philadelphia is sure to possess all the magic and sense of adventure possible that a live concert may evoke.
