Ian Boddy is one of those guys who has been lurking in the shadows of electronic music, sending out his rays of polyphonic delight since the early 80s when he was concentrating on ambient and anything remotely associated to the term new-age. Since then, he's set up his own DiN imprint and has used it primarily as a source for his own experimental work along with other similarly minded artists. Liverdelphia is a prolongation of his long heritage, exploring the vast terrains of synth-led, dreary-eyed sound sculptures. The work has a definite start and end to its nine track duration, beginning with metallic pads and whirling polyphonies on "Crystal Light" and "Driftwood" respectively; transforming into more beat-accompanied fantasies on "Triptastique" and "The Long Road"; and ending up at stranger, more desolate grounds on tracks like "Never Reaching" or "Coda" - a challenging yet moving listen which reaffirms Boddy's status as a true sound design expert.
