"Solar Bones formed as collaboration between electronic composer Patrick J Baxter and Paul Rains (Tigercats) in response to the wiaiwya 77 project.
Working with a graphic score containing only emotional scenarios, environments and illustrations, the timeline of 77 minute ‘7GONG7’ was divided into 7 movements. To coincide with the release date soon after the Summer Solstice, Solar Bones initially set out to harness the power of the Sun in sound. The result is a meandering journey through sonic territories exploring electronica, live drums, electric guitar, kalimba, synth and guitar drones.
Produced by Solar Bones in London, the track enlisted services of drummer Mike Collins and Kalimba player Duncan Barrett to feature in the opening, ‘Bounce’ and the penultimate movement, the house inspired ‘Floaty Arp’. The highlight, third movement ‘Buffalo’ is 7 minutes of groovy electronica."
