ARC biography
Classy electronic base spacey prog-ambient project formed by the legendary Ian Boddy and Mark Shreeve (from Redshift). Obvious 70s Berlin-school musical references. Most of the albums have been published by Ian Boddy's laboratory DiN. ARC delivers innovative and retro-ish electro-cerebral journeys. The duet made a handful of live sessions around Europe and United States.

— First review of this album —
4 stars Welcome to other machines!

Ian Boddy and Mark Shreeve's ARC, 2000, live recording "Radio Sputnik", is hauntingly attractive, song by song, there are 8, yet "structured" to be performed, as a single composition or "live" experience.

The well known prog/electronic whereabouts and composition skills, of both musicians, find an "unexpected" place to flourish and explode entirely and at the same time. And yes! They do "EXPLODE" in this "privileged", for those who attended, concert in the 5th Alfa-Centauri (electronic music) Festival.

ARC presented pieces from their first release, "Octane" as well as some newer and more complex unreleased material.

What makes this album relevant beyond itself, is the astonishing definition of an OWN and UNIQUE "third" musical progressive electronic language, constructed and structured perfectly tight by both musicians simultaneously, yet constantly daring to cross over, no matter how comfortable staying in a single place can be .

All kind of tempo, electronic music proposals, full of highly inspired performances and an unobtrusive creative collaboration, but always with the challenging goal to go higher and higher.

Hard labor and letting go all "loans", turns out to be a formula for such an extraordinary result. .

****4.5 " Experience sublimating pure progressive/electronic heaven!" PA stars.

— First review of this album —
4 stars Ian Boddy and Mark Shreeve conform ARC. One of the many music associations, which goes by this same name.

Both are well respected electronic proggers, both have their own solo discography, besides their mutual participation in the prog/electronic band: "Redshift". (Which Ian Boddy joined later, during original member James Goddard's absence).

Both musicians also share the same contemporaries. Mark Shreeve's solo music direction inclines toward "Tangerine's Dreamscapes" and pulses, which somehow become somewhat of a burden in the long run. Now, don't get me wrong, but his personal musical idiom, which he has, sometimes suffers of this unnecessary tendency to subdue itself.

Ian Boddy's solo career stands closer to the experimental "Ambient "electronics. He is, to call it somehow, less influenced by this sub-genre's famous "stars" (including also Mr. Schulze, of course!).

Therefore, what works great in this meeting of minds and styles, is that both musicians come to terms with a "third language", which is a perfectly balanced juxtaposition, of both musical universes. Carl Brooker provides some acoustic drumming on 4 tracks.

BLAZE, this 2003 project, is the perfect example of the above mentioned. Rich in "electronic" ideas and non-stop dynamic creativity. The formidable "third idiom" brings freedom to the musical manner of composition , which could only be aquired by this blend of styles. Its inherent progression as an album, becomes hypnotic, either be it, by its fresh and "unpolluted" approach or by its un-matchable and ORIGINAL song writing and performances.

****4 PA stars. Essential for followers of the sub-genre and other curious prog-cats!

Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition.
