"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.
1999. Jim Brenholts
The live-recording on this 70+ minuted CD contains the best qualities of 3 great musicians, using only analog electronic equipment. Ian Boddy brings some of the finest sequences you can imagine using his large MOOG System, while Ron Boots add his vast soundscapes and solos to it while talented drummer Harold van der Heijden fills in the rest by means of great dynamic rhythms and percussion. Highly acclaimed!
