Named after the ancient Buddhist temple in Singapore, Saiyuji concludes the CD trilogy begun with Disorient & The Reality Temples.
It's nine tracks were meticulously recorded over a period of a year and a half. The foundations for each piece were created on vintage analog synthesizers. Later, as the melodies formed in the ether, the music was layered using contemporary sensibilities and dusted with a hint of worldbeat rhythms. The result is a work of subtle mystery bridging the gap between old and new school
A labor of love and devotion, Saiyuji represents Richard Bone's most sophisticated work to date and also debuts his growing experimentation with ambient video. Two of which, "By Any Other Name" & "Improbable Earth," are included on the CD.
