DiNDDL11 | 2011

DiNDDL is the digital only arm of the well established DiN label and as such is a perfect vehicle for releasing live concert material, experimental releases and introducing new artists to the DiN audience. After the release of "Submission 01" as DiNDDL10 the first DiNDDL artist sampler compilation album we start off the next batch of releases with the latter scenario, the introduction of a new artist.

Lyonel Bauchet is a well established and prolific composer of music for TV, film and radio and in that respect he mirrors one aspect of DiN label boss Ian Boddy's DiN extra-curricular activities. Over the space of 35 years he has composed over 2,000 such pieces of music but has never sought a career in releasing music for public consumption in the form of album releases. Over this time he has created a wonderful studio just north of Paris for his work that alongside state of the art recording hardware features, and is centred upon, a monumentally huge Buchla 200e modular synthesiser. This is quite an instrument who's name may not be so familiar as other such modulars from the likes of Moog but in many ways it is a far more sophisticated piece of equipment and is capable of an incredibly rich sonic palette.

Boddy first contacted this talented French composer via a synth forum and was astonished to find that other than a few download  tracks and videos Bauchet had no recognised label album releases. Believing that the music he heard was perfect for the DiN label Boddy invited him to release this album which is a distillation of his best work based around the Buchla 200e and previously only available to a handful of people via his synth forum connections. The 9 tracks spanning over 60 minutes of music range in style from gorgeous ambient atmospheres through driving sequencer work-outs to full on rhythmic excursions. However throughout the album you can hear a master craftsmen at work with astonishing sound clarity and a wonderful over arching organic feel courtesy of the mighty Buchla.

DiN Sunderland, UK

The DiN ambient label was set up by Ian Boddy in 1999 to release ambient electronica that bridged the gap between the analogue sound of the early 70's synth pioneers and the digital soundscapes of the more experimental modern exponents of electronic music. ... more
