  "Ethereal, beatless ambiance, conjured in the pre-dawn hours when the day was taking  form, when the mind...creating that day...drifted between the real and the surreal.
   Quiet, gentle music for the rising of the new born Star or the setting of the waning Moon. "Hermetic Embers" is simply the sound of Peace."

VALENGRAPH  (sold out)

Richard Bone has a beautiful new album out now! The work is still very much ambient, though it seems the music has something more. Ten peaceful tracks to take you away...

'Pushing the boundaries of ambient music in new directions, Valengraph combines sweeping electronic foundation and mixes them with an assortment of light orchestral instruments, resulting in new meditative vistas and aural stories at once familiar & unknown. As always, headphones are strongly encouraged.'

(10 new ambient tracks for these trying times.)
More electronic and somewhat darker in places than previous releases, “Refraction” features the subtle use of sequences to create movement within many of the tracks. Although most tracks are written around beautiful melodies, some more abstract tracks like “The Dome” are more drone based.
However, all the tracks were created to be the gentle soundtrack for meditation, relaxation and journeys of the mind. I hope you will enjoy them.

Here's the tracks and ordering links

(sold out)

"For over a year I've been dilligently working on new music. "Empyrean Castles" is in the mastering stage and will be released on November 11. It features 50 minutes of structured, psychedelic ambience. Recorded and mixed entirely on headphones and is meant to be heard that way. I'll post some of the artwork just as soon as I finish it. I hope those who have supported my music through the years will enjoy "Empyrean Castles" as well. There will be a very limited CD run and on some outlets the digital version will have bonus tracks."
Here it is...

The long awaited 7" release is ready! Samples and cover artwork. Here's a review...  
Get it here.....


A collection of 8 ambient soundscapes with minimal, if any, percussion. All tracks were written based on intricate yet gentle patterns and were designed to transport the listener to new ‘landscapes of the mind’. Some have a darker tone while others slowly swing open the door to ethereal, immersive vistas.
Anyone familiar with Richard Bone most ambient works will find much to love within “A Garden of Invited Flowers”.

Richard's amazing 2017 recording!

"... Age of Falconry has a haunting beauty at work on many of its tracks, juxtaposed with a cheery warmth, both elements sitting comfortably next to each other despite their polar opposite natures. It takes a special artist to make this work, but then, this is Mr. Bone we're speaking of, so why am I not surprised?" ...

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

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!'
