  1. Ron Boots

    The Grand Banks.
    Submarine plateau rising from the continental shelf, (93,200 sq km), off SE N.F., Canada. It is 480 km long and 640 km wide; depths range from 20 to 100 fathoms. The cold Labrador Current flows over most of the banks; the warmer Gulf Stream sweeps along the eastern edge, sometimes crossing the southern part. The Grand Banks are noted for the persistent dense fog (formed as warm air passes over the cold water) that engulfs the area. The mingling of the two currents along with the shallowness of the water forms a favorable environment for plankton and other small sea life upon which cod, haddock, halibut, and other fish feed. Lobsters are also found there. Fog, Storm’s, icebergs, and the nearby transatlantic shipping lanes make it hazardous.

    Serengeti Part 1 (the dry season)
    Serengeti National Park is undoubtedly the best-known wildlife sanctuary in the world, unequalled for its natural beauty and scientific value. With more than two million wildebeest, half a million Thomson’s gazelle, and a quarter of a million zebra, it has the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa. The wildebeest and zebra moreover form the star cast of a unique spectacular – the annual Serengeti migration.
    In the open grass plains during the rainy months from November to May hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and Burchell’s zebra congregate. The area is the starting point for one of the great wonders of the world: the Serengeti annual migration. Towards the end of May when the grass becomes dry and exhausted, the wildebeest start to mass in huge armies. All is far from peaceful, for it is the rutting season and each male tries to establish a stamping ground. Eventually, after several dummy runs, the animals begin their trek in a column several miles long to the permanent waters in the north of the Park. After moving westwards, the migration divides by some uncanny instinct, one group turning north-east and the other due north. Once started, little stops the stampede. What a sight this must be, I hope to see it before my end.

  2. Bruce Gall / Sunday Synth

    Another fine example of European EM at its very best. There’s something in this album to keep listeners who like Berlin School-style to epic symphonic music very happy. Serengeti” Parts 1 and 2 are highlights for me. To use a well used phrase

  3. Sharad / India

    Goodness me!!
    I just heard some samples and can’t wait to purchase the CD. Ron Boots proves his mettle yet again.
    Great stuff!!!

  4. Edgar Kogler

    Starting from an approach near to Space Sequencer Music yet one based on some elements typical of Synth-Pop and of New Instrumental Music as well, Ron Boots achieves, with Area Movement” an excellent work

  5. Jim Brenholts

    Ron Boots is one of the leading practitioners of the new style of European e-music. Indeed, he is one of its pioneers. The style involves a combination of Berlin school sequences and deep atmospheric ambience. Area Movement is a set of six pieces devoted to important landscapes across the globe. Ron conceptualized these compositions over the last 15 years. He uses more acoustics than usual and different experimental sounds. He also sings on one track. As a synthesist, Ron is one of the worlds greatest electronicians. As a vocalist, Ron is one of the worlds greatest electronicians.
    This album is full of great e-music.

    2004. Jim Brenholts

  6. Mark Morton / Wind & Wire

    This recording presents the Berlin School in another light. Boots has his own style and has thoroughly integrated the conventions of what has become known as the Berlin School” into it. With many of these recordings

  7. Matt Howarth / Sonic Curiosity

    This release from 2003 offers 65 minutes of electronic songs inspired by impressive geographic locations, like the Serengeti, the Dutch Wadden Sea, the Rocky Mountains, and more.
    Boots is joined on this release by Harold van der Heijden on drums and Mighuel De Santos on additional guitar.

    In the first track, stately piano accompanied by symphonic textures usher the listener into icy waters, where bass tones establish a sluggish pattering that stirs the aquatic abyss in readiness for Boots‘ elegant synthesizers. A stern melody rises from the depths, goaded into view by softly defined percussion. Nimble chords emerge to swamp the harmonic flow, generating a tension that employs uplifting sentiments in tandem with dire consequences.
    The next track explores the African Serengeti during its dry season. Brittle E-perc and languid atmospheric tones hang in the air. Inventive riffs inject a mood of grandeur to the arid landscape. Popping notes and swooping textures drift through the resonant mix. Synthetic elements conspire to transform hissing sibilance into a fog of engaging demeanor.
    For Strand”

  8. Phil Derby / Electroambient Space

    Rons latest release is another exceptionally strong one, with all the Boots staples long, slowly developing pieces; crisp production and cool sounds; perfect blending of vintage and modern synth styles; and unparalleled sequencing and melodic themes.

    A low drone, softly tinkling space sounds, synth choirs and sparse piano all make a fine dramatic beginning to The Grand Banks”. As usual

  9. Jeff Wouters / Belgium

    Ron Boots as always has yet another album with an uncomprimising stand on excellence in electronic music! Beautiful melodies and intriguing rhythms await the listener in an epic series of musical journeys. I would highly recommend this album to any electonic music fan.
