SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, OCT. 16, 2011 – The elusive electronic musician who goes by the moniker of Boron was recently sighted publicly in Seattle, Washington. Photographs obtained by Field Hymns show Boron in conference with an individual on a Seattle street, his back to the camera. Another photograph depicts Boron exchanging what appears to be wires with the same individual, while a third portrays the artist fleeing the camera, his face shielded by an LP record.
The record has been identified by a member of SPIN magazine’s blogging staff to be the inner gatefold sleeve of Diana Ross’s self-titled 1980 LP. This would seem to be confirmed by a reference made by Boron, in a rare 1996 interview, to the Diana Ross song “My Old Piano,” which is featured on the 1980 Motown record.
No photograph of Boron showing his full face is known to exist.
The purpose of the Oregon musician’s presence in Seattle is unknown. Field Hymns has recently stated that Boron is at work on his third release for the independent label
