All Music Guide:
A founding member of N.Y.C.'s electronic music scene, Richard Bone started his career by writing music for off-Broadway theatre productions (using homemade processors), and has worked with neo-legendaries Lenny Kaye and Reeves Gabrels. In 1980, he joined Shox Lumania, but soon went solo and released a string of singles on Chrysalis Records. He has produced singles for Rubber Rodeo, composed original music for award-winning cable and broadcast television, and has been involved in the music video production of his own work released on the experimental Sony in the early '80s. His intriguing, ambient works continued into the '90s, culminating with 1999's Coxa, which featured a jazzy atmosphere. Many of his releases were put out by his own Quirkworks label.
