fretless17 Stunning live workout with
Boddy's synths creating a lush sonic carpet for Wollo's Nordic guitar to weave through.

markus mala I like these artists both, so together it's a kind of soundmood festival, electronic wizardery by Ian and atmospheres with guitar with Erik. Enjoy Favorite track: Prime Blue.

Dawa gompa great music done extremely well live.

living in Paris France, what a pity (shame !) we don't have quality live concerts of this genre musicale in this big city.

so it's nice that there are great live albums which capture those rare moments.

Ian Boddy & Erik Wøllo first worked together on the Frontiers album (DiN39) released in 2012 as a limited edition CD. This musical travelogue through imaginary northern landscapes garnered high praise for it’s shifting moods and panoramic soundscapes.

The duo were invited to play their inaugural concert at the Electronic Circus Festival V held in Guetersloh, Germany in the autumn of 2012. The organisers requested that Boddy & Wøllo performed as much of the Frontiers album as possible and indeed tracks 4 to 12 are taken from that release albeit interpreted for a live concert setting. A further 30 minutes of all new material was also composed and this comprises the opening 3 tracks of the concert.

Despite this being their first ever concert together the two musicians gelled well on stage and gave a passionate and energetic performance. Wøllo weaving his ambient E-bow guitar lines around the infectious sequencer lines of tracks such as Spindrift, Prime Blue, Trek & Steppe. Boddy meanwhile played his Ondes Martenot style electronic keyboard to eerie & haunting effect on tracks such as Apfelbaum, Vista, Reverie & Ascension. The three new pieces combine perfectly with the mood of the Frontiers tracks to produce a superbly played & spell binding concert performance from these two well respected ambient electronic musicians.

EC12 is released as a download album on the DiNDDL sub-label with full res artwork.
