Ian Boddy, Markus Reuter & Nigel Mullaney – Triptych

DiN9 | released 01 November 2001 | Boddy, Reuter and Mullaney offer a seamless blend of improvisation and composition in this latest disc taken from their appearance at the E-Live 2000 Festival in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

As you’d expect when three musicians of this calibre get together to perform on stage for the first time, there are moments of delicacy, robust experimentation and tangles of knotted rhythms with critical breaks and sequences which are guaranteed to have fans of electronic music salivating.
Moving somewhere between the transient hinterlands of ambient and dance, Triptych blurs the edges in swathes of lambent sonics, as layer after layer of shifting timbre and harmony coalesce into a music which is expansive in its vision and yet knowingly intimate in its detail.
Fans of Ian Boddy’s distinctive use of atmospherics and colour will not be disappointed by this release and here he combines forces with Markus Reuter’s heartfelt searing touch guitar and Nigel Mullany’s innovative use of decks which has syntax and sound-pigments falling into forever.
