Howard Armitage - Tranquil Water

Artist: Howard Armitage
P: 2000
Unlike many of the more prolific artists in contemporary medative music, Howard offers a stunning spiritual album creating introspective music full of subtle beauty, at times quite delicate. Throughout the music encompasses a feeling of great beauty woven together in pure ecstasy, If it possible to perfect the craft of evoking human feelings then this is it. You will be carried away by 'Tranquil Water' overflowing with the qualities of peace and tranquillity.
Sometimes, you CAN judge a book by its cover. The full moon over the water on the front cover, with the phrase "Music to relax the Spirit." A unicorn on the back cover. Titles like 'The Calm,' 'At Peace,' and 'Be Still' don't suggest sequencer-infused rhythmic passages, and indeed they are not. This is peaceful, soothing music with a decidedly new age bent, complete with bird noises and loads of water sounds.
  If you like soft, sweeping synths, mixed with light bells and nature sounds, then you should find this disc appealing. Though mostly electronic in nature, the music does strive to convey a sense of emotion and passion. And though the sounds and themes are nothing that hasn't been done before, I suppose it does succeed in this regard. In fact, you would be hard-pressed to be anything but relaxed and calm after listening to this CD. This is early morning music for quiet reflection. Either that, or music for meditation. Armitage clearly can play, as demonstrated by the piano in 'Calling,' which is simple but quite beautiful. Other than this, though, most of the disc relies on large doses of lush synth strings and pads. Acoustic guitar makes a brief appearance on 'Big Blue,' interspersed with very bright, tinkling electronics. 'Drifting' is appropriately titled, as synth oboe strains waft over more atmospherics. Fans of more emotive Vangelis works may enjoy this CD, and it should really appeal to fans of music in the traditional new age style. (PD)

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.

Ian Boddy - Continuum

Artist: Ian Boddy
P: 1996
This 2CD set is edited from a 7 hour improvised performance Boddy gave in an art gallery during a Comic Art Festival within a sci-fi like setting. Many see this album as the bridge between Boddy's earlier, more melodic styles and the ambient textural approach he developed leading up to the formation of his DiN label in 1999.
The original pressing is now out of print but it has been reissued as a high quality CDr with the original sleeve.

Ian Boddy - Drive

Artist: Ian Boddy
P: 1991 
The second release on Surrel to Real by Ian Boddy featured Julian Maynard-Smith on electronic wind synth. Drive's 9 tracks have a more structured, compact form than Odyssey but still retain Boddy's melodic style from this period.

Ian Boddy - Odyssey

Artist: Ian Boddy
P: 1989
This album heralds from 1989 and if memory serves was Ian’s first ever CD release. It marked the start of his mid period, finishing with the classic ‘Uncertainty Principle’ and ‘the Deep’. Unlike those albums however this one has never seen a re-release so of all the post ‘Climb’ recordings it is by far the rarest. But what of the music? Well you can’t beat a good old crashing sound to start an album and boy does the opening of ‘Hyperion’ crash! Then, in marked contrast, we get some lovely floating, soothing pads with little tinkling effects. A gorgeous plucked string melody takes us forward. Things become even more beautiful as we progress. A melancholy melody soars into the heights in uplifting Vangelis fashion. This in turn is replaced by plucked strings and then an almost John Dyson style lead line. ‘A Time Remembered’ is just as beautifully as its predecessor with acoustic guitar and flutey synth over exquisite synth washes.
‘Amazonia’ starts with appropriate rainforest type effects, ethnic flute and percussion. The pace picks up with a gamelan lead line then more flutey synth. Just after the half way mark it is all change with a sort of medieval rhythm that reminded me a little of one of the tracks off ‘Phoenix’. Very infectious and joyous stuff. ‘Masquerade’ provides us with more acoustic guitar and layer after layer of excellent melodies, which continue through, to ‘Lammergeyer’ that has a feel not too dissimilar to the earlier ethnic tinged ‘Amazonia’. Things take a darker and almost film music turn with the title track. Ethereal pads mix with orchestral and organ sounds to give a large epic feel. ‘Chameleon’ is a much more conventionally rhythmic affair, slowly winding up the pace until we are belting along, lead lines flying over the top. Ideal for air keyboard playing. It has to be said that this is Ian’s most tuneful and quite frankly undemanding album taking his earlier style and adding ethnic and even chamber music influences. It is the antitheses to what he was later to produce on his own DiN label. (DL)

Ian Boddy - The Deep

Artist: Ian Boddy
P: 1994
The Deep is probably the closest Boddy's ever come to a 'concept' album. He has made no secret of the fact that several of the pieces are heavily influenced by the James Cameron film The Abyss and indeed the opening track which fades in with the sound of a submarine sonar perfectly sets the scene with it's eerie crescendo of voices. There are many orchestral influences on evidence as well with tracks such as In the Realm of Poseidon and Sub-Aquiem lending an air of grandeur to the proceedings. Other tracks such as The Deep, Sirens Call and Re-Emergence add to the overall dark atmosphere of the album although there is a bit of light relief in the shape of Aquanaut and Flow Current Flow.
The opening four tracks were performed to spectacular effect at concerts at The Derby Guildhall and also at the first EMMA Music Festival during 1994.

J. Arif Verner - A Vision beyond Light

Artist: J. Arif Verner
P: 1996
From the Spotted Peccary Label, one would expect an ambient/tribal sound. Verner moves away from the tribal aspect and gives a quality "Hearts of Space"-style space music effort. Bravo!! Because of his use of MIDI guitar, some passages sound like the works of Jeff Pearce. However, Verner's synthesizer and the use of many more layers of sound give this work a step up on Pearce's compositions. Wonderful addition to any space music fan's library. If you like Char-El, Meg Bowles, or Jeff Pearce, you'll like this CD. A fine work to relax by, especially under the stars.

James Johnson - Unity

Artist: James Johnson
P:
1998
“Unity” is the debut album by ambient composer James Johnson, of which the music at the time of its initial release was compared with Steve Roach’s releases “Quiet Music” and “Structures from Silence”.

This certainly applies to the first track “Forward”, a beautiful exercise in tranquil, gentle lingering and introspective music. The atmosphere and impact of the other three overall relaxed and melancholic pieces made me think of Brian Eno and Harold Budd, displaying a slow morphing tapestry of textures and sustained piano all travelling gradually through darker and lighter territory.
