Automatic Collect, Automatic Correct


This post is dedicated to Michael Boddicker, musician and synthesizer master specializing in electronic music. In 1976, he played keyboards on Candi Staton “Young Hearts Run Free” album, he was only 23 years old. By the time he was thirty, Boddicker was one of the most requested session player in the business, appearing on over 400 albums, movies and television shows including “Saturday Night Fever”, “Thriller” and “We Are The World,” three of the biggest selling recordings in history. He played on “Give Me The Night” by George Benson, on Kenny Loggins’ “Footloose”. “State Of Independence” by Donna Summer and “Dancing On The Ceiling” by Lionel Richie are also in his curriculum. To show you his magic touch, I picked a lesser-known track written by Boddicker and performed with Japanese Logic System. Note: “If you don’t listen this album, you can’t enjoy the essence of computer music”.
