Ian Boddy - WXPN
Where they’re from: Newcastle, England
Who they are: 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 material by other innovative artists. Thus far DiN has released 30 CDs (with Boddy involved musically in many) and achieved widespread critical acclaim for its adventurous outlook at the world of electronic music.
Years active: Late 70s – Current
Essential albums: The three inaugural releases on the DiN label’s DiN/DDL (DiN Digital DownLoad) imprint were The Final Question (2000), Three Dreams (2004) and The Mechanics of a Thought (2006) by Ian Boddy, all recorded live on STAR’S END.
