This CD-R contains music from the concert that Ron Boots, Harold van der Heijden and Kees Aerts gave in Sweden on the island Valö, on June 1 1998.

Derelict thoughts is the name Ron Boots is going to use for his Ambient releases.

that would fit the description. But he is most known for his Sequencing and fast past
Electronic tracks. But under the name Derelict thoughts this well see his first all Ambient release since Too Many Secrets. Music described by those who visited his concerts together with Pieter Nooten in Amsterdam and The Hague as mesmerizing soundscapes with a warm sound.
Slow detailed flowing sound pieces that move in a natural organic way..
Autumn Moon is the music that was improvised during these performances.
For these 2 shows Ron played numerous versions during the preparation of them.
And from these preparations came the title track that is over 37 minutes long.
A long breathing piece of music that evolves like a dream.
If you like the soft side of Ron's music you will love this!!

Frank Klare + Ron Boots - Digitalic

Artist: Frank Klare & Ron Boots
P:
2007

"Digitalic" can be defined as pure Space Sequencer Music, with melodic atmospheres that come and go, as well as hypnotic sequencer solos in a trance key. The structure of the work is very rhythmic. The rhythms even sustain the melodies, in the shape of minimalist sequences that keep oscillating around a determined basis.
All the themes have been composed by Frank Klare, except for Digitalic Five and Digitalic Six, where Ron Boots has participated.

Ian Boddy + Ron Boots - Phase 3

Artist: Ian Boddy, Ron Boots & Harold Van Der Heijden
P: 1997

Phase 3" is a live collaboration from Ron Boots, Ian Boddy and Harold van der Heijden. This trio has contributed much to the European ambient electronica scene through their Groove Records associations in the 1990's. Ian and Ron are legitimate superstars. Harold is a master ambient percussionist. This album has it all! The music ranges from dark and lush atmospheric ambient minimalism to up-tempo rhythmic ambience. The superstar and master tags are not wasted here. Ian, Ron and Harold perform to the nth degree. The album encompasses all that live ambience should be - introspective, challenging and diverse.


Here the last copy.

John Kerr + Ron Boots - Juxtaposition The Oirschot Concert

Artist: John Kerr & Ron Boots  
P: 2016

JUXTAPOSITION The Oirschot Concert was recorded live during E-Day 2016 with guest appearances by John Dyson, Frank Dorittke, Jeffrey Haster Bas Broekhuis and Harold v.d. Heijden. The recording was done from the Master desk in a stereo Wave file and additional audience recordings are from "illegal recordings by Andre Stooker and Niko Olofsen" thanks for them it made my life much easier :-) (Ron)
The filming was done by Niko Olofsen and his Son on 5 Samsung Phones. So although the quality is not solid 4K I think it is a remarkable achievement. The video was Tangenized (extra enhancements added) and edited by Niko Olofsen. We think he did a fabulous job on this with the material he had!!
John and I would like to thanks John Dyson, Frank Dorittke, Jeffrey Haster Bas Broekhuis and Harold v.d. Heijden for their remarkable performances during this concert. And if you keep in mind that all rehearsals where split (Yes we had NO full band rehearsal prior to the day it self which gave us about 15 minutes of rehearsal time!!) we are blessed with these 5 brilliant musicians. And a big thanks to the technical staff at the Enck (Bart and Bram) who helped us enormously! And for winfried Trenkler to come all the way from Sweden to see us live!
BUT the biggest that is for all you our audience. Over 300 people came to this E-Day 2016 which was the best visited E-Day to date! John and I would like to send our warmest regards to you all and we hope you will enjoy this registration as much as we did when we saw it the first time.

John Kerr + Ron Boots - Offshore Islands

Artist: John Kerr & Ron Boots  
P: 1990 / 1998 / 2015 

"Offshore Islands," by Ron Boots and John Kerr, was originally released in 1990. The unlikely pairing of John, known for his classical approach, and Ron, known for more cosmic soundscapes, was a stroke of genius. The resulting sound is a dramatic crescendo of energy and waves of unabashed sonic panache. The islands referenced in the title are offshore oil rigs, presumably in the North Atlantic. The album pays homage to the crews working the rigs and the hardships that they endure.
The music is crisp and clean. The diametric styles clash and conjoin, emphasizing the mutual respect that these artists have for each other and for their theme. The floating, gentle synthesizer washes of Ron Boots permeate this release, paving the way for his solo efforts to follow. John Kerr clearly influences this disc in terms of more melodic structure, and more than occasional new age leanings. However, Kerr and Boots seem to strike a balance, such that electronic purists who shy away from new age should not be too put off by it.

Ron Boots + Others  - Joie De Vivre

Artist: Ron Boots
P: 1999

This is our third official live release and it gives an impression of the music we play as specials and encore pieces. In other words: This is all new music. You don't hear any familiar pieces from other CDs. That makes this CD unique, with music that was played once and will never be heard in this form again.
For us musicians this is the greatest way to perform; not being limited to studio versions, it gives us a feeling of freedom on stage and it certainly increases the amount of adrenalin in our vains during the performance.
Some mishaps are inevitable and also remember that NO overdubs or after-editing is done other then making it as good sounding as possible. The audience you hear are the people who came to CEOS 1999 in Cologne. I decided to let them in for the atmosphere and edit them in after Harolds drumsolo in Freewave.
Have fun listening and remember... Live recordings should be played LOUD! Never mind the neighbours, you can blame it on me.


Track 1, 2 and 3 are recorded live at CEOS 1999
Synths: Ron Boots, Eric van der Heijden, Kees Aerts

Ron Boots + Others - By Popular Demand

Artist: Ron Boots & Others
P: 1993/ 1999
"By Popular Demand" is a CD of live performances by Ron Boots, Eric van der Heijden and friends.
The friends are Gerald Vos, Harold van der Heijden, Ad van Gerwen, Bas Broekhuis, Ingrid Lohuis and Klaus Hoffman Hoock.
Some of the selections feature Ron's penchant for live synth trios, others feature synth duets and percussion. The highlight is the cosmic and ethereal "Through Mental Doors." That piece features narration by Louise, Harold's masterful drumming, a synth trio of Ron, Eric and Ad and Ad and Ron on didjeridu!  It is one of the wildest outer space rides imaginable! The massive soundscape is carried by some wild sci-fi manipulations and some overblown sequences. Ron's didg drone sets it up and a synth drone takes it home. The whole album sparkles with energy and giddy zeal. This is a classic example of live electronica and its intention - fun and entertainment!
20bit remastered version of "By Popular Demand" from 1993. It contains material from several live performances.
Released in April 1999.

Ron Boots + Synth.NL - Refuge en Verre

Artist: Ron Boots + Synth.NL
P: 2010

A very good combination out of the two dutch Synthesizer musicians. The style is melodic, rhythmic and with a lot of sequences.
This is our very first album together and it has a very nice story to it. We first met at a Synthesizer Meeting organized by the Dutch 'Synth Forum' in 2006. There we started talking about synthesizers and synthesizer music and found out that we shared the same fascinations. As a result Michel signed up as Synth.nl in 2007 with Groove.
We worked a lot in the studio together after that remixing and mastering. Since then we have become very good friends and we visit each other on regular basis. Also our wives, kids and even the dogs like each other. In 2010 our wives decided to rent a house together in the Belgian Ardennes for a weekend. We both brought a synthesizer and a laptop and tried to make music together for the first time and that went very well actually. We recorded quite some tracks there. After the weekend we decided that we should release this music on CD.
So we started on finishing the music together when we got back in our own studios. The result is this album called 'Refuge en Verre', which was the name of the house we rented. We got the inspiration for the music we played from the beautiful nature in the Belgian Ardennes and the nice time we had with our families over there. Most of the tracks were played live as improvisations in the temporary studio that we created in the rented house.

Ron Boots - Acoustic Shadows

Artist: Ron Boots
P: 2006
No, Ron Boots, Holland’s leading electronic musician, has not created an acoustic album. An “acoustic shadow” is a phenomenon whereby a sound, such as the “thunder” of artillery during a battle, can be clearly heard far in this distance and yet be unheard by observers closer to the battle. For “Acoustic Shadows” Ron let himself be inspired by the war periods and the reasons for them. It struck Ron that there is never a good or sensible reason to start a war. “Acoustic Shadows” is a tribute to the soldiers that died in numerous useless battles.
It is almost three years ago since Ron has made his last solo-album “Area Movement” but it has been worthwhile waiting. “Acoustic Shadows” can be regarded as one of his best records. Ron’s sound is, as always, rich and full of details. Every time you hear this music, you hear new things.
The almost symphonic “The Unknown Soldier” opens the cd. It reminds of his masterpiece “Tainted Bare Skin”.
The tracks on “Acoustic Shadows” are accompanied with voices that tell stories about wars.
“The Battle Of The Somme” is one of the best pieces Ron had ever created. The sequences are absolutely great. After the somewhat atmospheric title track, Ron pumps things up somewhat on “Assault”.
“Desolate Fields” fits its title because it is a little dark and slow composition.
“Dresden” ends the six pieces on the album in a typical “Ron Boots-way”.
With “Acoustic Shadows” Ron has proven again to be one of the best electronic musicians of today.
