Description et paroles
Ian Boddy is one of the most important and influential virtuosos in the e-music community. He has been recording electronica since 1987 and has had two major labels for his releases. He founded Something Else Records as a vanity label strictly for his own music. He released at least 15 CDs on that label and became closely associated with Ron Boots and Kees Aerts as a "friend" of Groove Unlimited. They feature his music on their website and he has performed many concerts with them, one of which was recorded and released as a Groove CD, Phase Three.
Norwegian composer Erik Wøllo started out as a jazz guitarist and dabbled in jazz-rock fusion on his early recordings. In 1984, however, he came out with Traces, an electronic album of startling originality. His subsequent releases are equally impressive. While there's always a sense of warmth to his atmospheric pieces, his music resounds with the stark beauty of Norway's wintry landscapes. Through his subtle minimalist patterns and nebulous breaths of sound, you can easily imagine the composer staring through windows splayed with ice crystals as Arctic winds whisper across the snow fields and ethereal northern lights pulse steadily in the distance.
