Richard's recording is now available for ordering! A CD of all new material, INVOLUTION v.1   
features 10 tracks of Richard's much loved unique melodic style on both rhythmic and less rhythmic tracks. More from RB:

As we grow older, if we are fortunate, we become aware of unseen hands guiding us along our lives. There is simply no other way to explain the wondrous synchronicities of my life. With "Involution" I completely allowed my guides to take primary control. The first thoughts that came to me regarding instruments & melodies are what you hear. I know many of you will understand what I mean, while others will think I am a nut case. You're probably both right! rb

Hurry over to Bandcamp though for the best price until the CD sells out!)

In Integral Theory, the process by which the Divine manifests the cosmos is called involution.

Richard’s much anticipated recording - VERTICAL LIFE, released March 2014. This gorgeous full-length CD is filled with 10 mind expanding voyages. Here’s more…

'Featuring ten new meticulously crafted works of 'Surreality', Vertical Life is melodic ambience for contemplation and flying carpets. Without becoming mired in the heavy handed approach so prevalent in the ambient genre, Vertical Life is inspired by the early (the 1960's) and current exploration into the expansion of human consciousness. We stand at the doorway of a new era of infinite possibility, majik and alchemy. Vertical Life is the soundtrack to one of these exploratory journeys. It is best enjoyed under a galaxy of planets and stars, be they real or imagined. And maybe, just maybe, on a flying carpet of your own design!'

CRANIUM FIZZ - Richard's first vinyl EP in 30 years

'Cranium Fizz is a 12" vinyl EP that released September 5, 2013. It contains four tracks best descirbed as 'chillout music for mind and feet'. The title track is the most danceable with elements of electronica and jazz sprinkled throughout. Highly rhythmic it is, but it never descends into a tacky homage to disco. Far from it. Bleeps and cranium fizzes are sprinkled atop an electric piano. The piano in turn rocks firmly over solid bass and percussion. The other 3 tracks slow the pace down a bit as they draw the mind into the chillout grooves. The production is clever and, as with all Richard Bone releases, begs to be heard on headphones!'
