2013 release. Limited edition of 500. Ian Boddy is a prolific British electronic musician and composer. He has been active since the early '80s with numerous releases and contributions to many international labels such as Flowmotion, Mirage, Signal Records, Colin Potter's ICR, Third Mind, his own DiN label (founded in 1999), and many more. His creative output is influenced by '70s German krautrock/electronica, especially artists like Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schulze. In the late '70s and early 1980s Boddy began experimenting at an Arts Council-funded studio in Newcastle called Spectro Arts Workshop, where he was able to use the facility and its equipment (e.g. VCS 3, EMS, etc.) to compose and record his first compositions. This early period resulted in three cassette releases on the Mirage label, which showcased Boddy's work with analog synthesis and tape manipulation -- Images (1979/80), Elements of Chance (1981), and Options (1982). This three-LP box set includes all three tape releases plus additional bonus and live material from this period.
