Profile
Richard Bone (1952) is considered one of the founding members of the New York electronic music scene. He began composing songs and improvisational pieces using the very first commercially available synthesizers as early as 1979. The exploration of electronics in underground pop and the new wave sounds of the early 1980s continued until the middle of that decade. At that point Richard's music began to reflect his admiration for the pioneering works of Harold Budd and Brian Eno. By the 1990s Bone had stopped composing and recording vocal works entirely and to this day he continues to search for new and fresh approaches to that art form now called “ambient.”
