gr-259 Boots, Ron - Once the Dust Settles

When was the last solo album of Ron Boots? I would go for Standing in
the Rain at the very end of 2014, although that he was accompanied of
Harold van der Heijden, Frank Dorittke et Onder Nomaler. But that was
solo compositions. And yet, the master of the Dutch EM movement has
been at all times since 2015. Collaborations with John Kerr, both on
records and shows (the Juxtaposition album), convincing Stephan
Whitlan to make a come back, same thing for John Dyson! In addition to
mastering some of Groove's albums, Ron Boots has set up a series of
collaborations that have been all well received by his fans and the
fans of his ever-lively style. Between these collaborations, these
appearances at prestigious EM festivals and the organizations of the
main events of EM in Holland, E-Day and E-Live, Groove's boss has
found a way to compose new music that is found on this “Once the Dust
Settles”. The result? Well, like everything he touches turns into an
album that must be bought, “Once the Dust Settles” is in the tradition
of Standing in the Rain and Signs in the Sand, but with a darker touch
which establishes a chthonian climate quite close of Tangerine Dream's
74-77 years.
A dark shadow, torn by filaments sizzling like a ball of static
electricity but just as cajoled by murmurs of flutes, invites our ears
to a fascinating disorder where many lines of synth stir like a knot
of waves to take as many shapes than tones. Reverberant roaring or
percussions that make roaring the ambiances, the title track of “Once
the Dust Settles” plunges the listener into an abyss of darkness
electrified by parasitic filaments where floats the sparkling song of
a sequencer that shines between synth blades with those cataclysmic
perfumes from Vangelis. In its sonic envelope obscured by so many
disparate elements, "Once the Dust Settles" opens the doors of a
universe that wobbles between 2 probabilities. One of ambiences and
the other of rhythms, but in a state of darkness that does quite
Ricochet. A good opening track! It may be that "A Sense of Turmoil"
sounds familiar to you. It's indeed a reworked and shortened version
of the title Dream but not of Today from the album Signs In The Sand.
Thus, "A Sense of Turmoil" has a more rock and more suitable to be
performed in concert with the usual acolytes of Ron Boots, as well as
in a more intimate setting like the one in the Cosmic Night of 2018.
But whatever it be, the music is washing our ears with a high level of
intensity which is more palpable here. The line of ascending sequences
in the background is more present and more sustained, while its finale
sparkling of cosmic tones overflows up to the introduction of "Orbital
Paths". This epic title of nearly 23 minutes is the ultimate peak of
“Once the Dust Settles”.
Its opening is also dressed in this harmonious tumult which covers the
music of this last opus of Ron Boots, whereas the rhythm develops
slowly in its progres sive envelope doped of intensity. Fragile
arpeggios frolic and freeze a sequence weaver of earworm which remains
suspended in a stable electronic climate where woosh and waash are
pushing sound particles which glitter on the back of a slow symphonic
movement filled with emotion. Filaments of sequences get grafted and
one of them sculpts a cosmic rodeo whose minimalist approach
circulates in continuous circles between the woosh and waash, as well
as synth lines whose sinister harmonies dream of the universe of
Vangelis. The orchestrations weave a poignant universe and gradually,
ambiences and rhythm, deliciously hypnotic by the way, embrace a
velocity under huge and intense synth pads stolen to the darkness. The
rhythm reaches a stationary phase and flutters like an armada of
metallic dragonflies on these layers which position themselves into
pillows of mists and violins. Throughout its journey, the structure of
"Orbital Paths" increases its velocity and intensity with the addition
o f self-taught shadows of sequences and a good throbbing bass as well
as breezes from a synth which perfectly scatters its effects and its
singing solos. This is a very good Berlin School which is the
tradition of the good tracks from Ron Boots and of Klaus Schulze's
style with a more contemporary imprint! And it's not over! Take the
discreet rhythmic skeleton of "A Sense of Turmoil", give it more tone
and presence. Graft it then to "Solar Flares Burst with Magic" and you
have another great title from Ron. Its introduction is sewn into a
form of nebulosity which is similar to the atmospheric masses of “Once
the Dust Settles”. The upward movement of the sequencer hits early!
Like a spiral staircase that rises constantly towards the heavens, it
climbs relentlessly while being pecked by fickle castanets. The lines
of sequences abound here with a vision of tumult, like these balls of
lead rolling on a conveyor and these stroboscopic effects in the
unfolding of certain lines of sequences which fatten the chaos of this
vertical structure, whereas the turbulence of the ambience clings onto
the orchestrations, the harmonic solos and pockets of sound effects
that surround this circular procession emerging undoubtedly from
darkness. And like the other tracks of this album, the rhythm and the
ambiences sail with intensity to reach a wilder last part, an even
violent ending.
Without too flattering the pride of our friendly Ron, “Once the Dust
Settles” shows that the genius of Ron Boots continues to shine, even
with a schedule as busy as his'. His music is always heavy and lively,
though more frenzied here and this in both of rhythmic structures and
atmospheres, while being surrounded by creative synths rich in
effects, orchestrations and solos which are also singing. A great
album imagined in the abysses and that will certainly please the
aficionados of the sequencer-based style ...

75312 V/A - Tone Science Module No.2 Elements and Particles

And if I told you that there is a way to discover contemporary
progressive electronic music without breaking the bank, would you
believe it? That's the bet of Ian Boddy who year after year pushes the
limits of his creativity by innovating on several fronts. DinDDL is a
virtual record company which is in parallel with the activities of DiN
Records. Aware that EM is an art whose engine resides in research, Ian
Boddy has set up this division to expose works where the craftsmen of
analog and modular synths carry the fruit of their research available
to everyone. Experimental and progressive EM, yes! But there are
always filaments of harmonies which are hiding there. Harmonies as
elusive as the patterns of rhythms and the textures of vibes.
Available on June 15, “Submission Vol 2” is built following the same
ideology as Submission Vol 1, either by choosing a title among the
albums 11 to 19 which have been offered for download since the very
good T he Secret Society from Lyonel Bauchet. Apart from this album,
the nine other titles of “Submission Vol 2” are spotlights on Ian
Boddy and the progression of his solo career, there are 4 of his
albums, or in duet where we also find 4 albums. Ian Boddy has edited
this compilation on last May and concocted an album which fills our
ears with a feast of tones, from analog and/or modular synths, but
also a feast of rhythms as odd as quite lively. In the end, it's an
nice compilation of an amazing EM.
The album opens with a title from The Secret Society, "Pavane K4816".
According to my tastes, this is not the best title of this album, I
would have preferred Dawn, but Ian Boddy doesn't necessarily choose
the best title on each of these albums, he wants to create a
heterogeneous mosaic that meets the criteria of creativity of the
label. "Pavane K4816" is a slow track. A kind of experimental ballad
that is rather melodious in its colorful cocoon and evolves slowly on
its ascending structu re decorated with dark breaths, ominous buzzing,
Tibetan percussion and other unidentified tones. A Mephistophelic mist
envelops chords and synth riffs that seem lost in this avant-garde
setting that remains astonishingly melodious and alive. The Secret
Society was a revelation for me in 2011. Subsequently, one dives into
the evolutions of DiN's boss. It's missing just over 2 minutes at
"Crossing the Range", a title from the album Strange Attractors which
was released in 2012 and which is the recording of a magical concert
that Ian Boddy gave in the framework of the Awakenings festival in
April 2011. Superb and animated with a rhythm which will explode like
the best of Arc, "Crossing the Range" evolves slowly throwing between
our ears a panoply of elements worthy of the hallucinatory decorations
of Arc and Redshift. This is a big track in this album, as well as
"Arclight", which are actually 2 albums of pure England School. "After
the Rain" also comes from a live album that Ian Bod d y has performed
at Berlin's Basic Electricity in June 2012. This is an excerpt from a
long experimental title of more than 40 minutes where Boddy pushed the
limits of his Serge Modular system. The proposed excerpt flirts
between atmospheres and industrial rhythms and fits very well to this
mosaic whose primary purpose is to introduce you to the new horizons
of EM and of the Modular systems. We can't extract more beautiful
harmonies of crumpled and twisted metal here!
Then come the first 10 minutes of "Monument", a monumental title that
comes from the album Sepulchre and whose music comes from a concert,
more intimate, given in the studios of American university radio,
University of Pennsylvania, WXPN 88.5 FM. We hear a totally unleashed
Ian Boddy who proposes a furious rhythm, woven by heavy and organic
sequences, which rolls under the synth spectral breezes. Heavy and
attractive, this is the pinnacle of an album released at the beginning
of 2013. "The Basement" is a title of so und experimentation which,
placed in a context of this compilation, comes right on time in order
to rest the ears which bleed in front of so much tones' aggressivity.
Recorded at the very beginning of his career, with his friend Sid
Smith, the album Other Rooms offered a dark and experimental universe
where the sound experiences of the analogous years ended in sound
cocktails as much astonishing and strange as well as sometimes
strangely mesmerizing. "Prime Blue" from the album EC12, also recorded
in concert, proposes an electronic rock which evolves on a good
pattern of sequences and electronic percussions and where Wollo &
Boddy exchange solos from a biting guitar and other dreamier synth
solos. Erik Wollo is fiercely convincing here. "Arclight" is some
solid Arc on stage in Liverpool 2014. "Cantata" is one of the first
titles of Ian Boddy which has appeared on a cassette format, entitled
Images, at the beginning of the 80's. It's an electronic rock which is
very The Doors with i t s layers of organ tones. We recognize the
essence of the England School style debut with a constant and hypnotic
rhythm on which get accumulate multi-lines of synth and/or keyboard in
a dark and Chthonian texture. "Stay" is the title-track of a more
contemporary album released last year and made with Markus Reuter. The
music concluded the album with a dark texture full of heavy buzzings
which cross an area of tranquility.
Here we go! You have most of the last 7 years adventures of the
DiN-DDL label. As you can see, there is everything in this compilation
which exceeds 90 minutes of a creative and appetizing EM for those who
still want more. It's also the best way to initiate the ears to a
universe of disparate and unidentifiable tones which are not just
floating. No! There are heavy and lively rhythms in this compilation
which is also a superb trip in the electronic years of Ian Boddy and
of his label. Available in download format only, starting this Friday,
June 15, 2018.
