…in fact, Richard has been contributing anything up to four pastoral solo guitar and piano pieces per show since the series began .. Regular viewers are subliminally familiar with pieces like ‘Carnival’, ‘Latin’, ‘Mercredi’ and ‘Seaweed’.

Richard Bell- Shunya

Richard is a musician and producer living in the hills near Uki in northern New South Wales, always in search of the spacious in his music creations.

He releases albums under the name Shunya (meaning ‘the end of the out-breath’ in Sanskrit) and spent the first three months of 2020 writing and recording a new project, ‘Presence Begins’.

It’s another thoughtful and relaxing collection of songs and atmospheres, sometimes following a devotional thread, sometimes more conventional pop, with guests including his son Fraser Bell on drums, synth and electric guitar and Elias Harmony, Tanya Wester and Swaha Devi on additional vocals.

Link to his Bandcamp page for an easy digital download of  ‘Presence Begins’ and previous releases ‘Departure Lounge’ (2019) and the exquisite collection of solo piano pieces ‘The Secret Chord’ (2018), perfect background music for artists at work.

All Shunya’s albums are available on CD by post from
