RICHARD BONE Age of Falconry CD (Mega Dodo)
Richard Bone has a long history in music, creating scores for experimental theatre companies before forming the band Bone in the late 1970s then joining new-wavers Shox Lumania in 1981. Later he went solo and released a large number of records on Survival, his own label Quirkworks, and other labels. He has now switched to Mega Dodo for the newly released album Age of Falconry, which covers a broad range of creative electronic compositions.
Queensberry Wilde is inventive electronic music taking in elements of classical, New Age and folk. Let Us Prey is chilling, abstract experimental music with a dystopian sci-fi film soundtrack feel. A Shooting Star Was I is a soothing piece combining lilting electric piano with cosmic electronica. Urgent Curious has relaxing drones and bells giving way to laid-back dance beats and a Middle Eastern inspired melody. Banyan Days merges filmic, neoclassical elements with mechanical whirrs and woozy, glitchy effects. Winged Persia is a gently thrumming ambient piece with elements of vintage style spacey electronica. Apotheosis juxtaposes tense, menacing drones with floaty, cosmic atmospherics.
