Ian Boddy : Markus Reuter : Nigel Mullaney - Triptych (2001)

Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Ian Boddy - Elements of Chance (1981) + Options (1982)

A sublime collaborative album between German experimental guitarist Markus Reuter (get his new album now!) and UK-based synth wizards Ian Boddy and Nigel Mullaney. Sure, there's plenty of lovely, gently pulsing synths and shimmering guitar bliss, but it's not all musical lithium -- there are more than enough dub-y, murky chasms and fractured, a-melodic textures to keep thing interesting.

Track listing:
1. Sienna Daze
2. Mystertronic
3. Triptych: First Image
4. Triptych: Second Transmission
5. Triptych: Final View
6. Ionosphere

  1. I like some of that dark dub-y Laswell style. This should rubby my stubby.
