Biography

Solar Quest is a one-man ambient and acid trance music project founded in 1993 by George Saunders and its aim is to combine renewable solar energy with electronic music.

Solar Quest was founded when Saunders got interested in acid house in the beginning of the 1990’s. In 1993 and 1994 he had as much as nine releases, of which two were full length albums (the other under alias Entropica). The track Acid Air Raid, released in 1993, is one of the classics of acid techno and next year’s dreamy Orgship is a significant release in ambient music.

For the annual Glastonbury Performing Arts Festival Solar Quest has often produced a solar energy powered ambient concert tent and a lot of its music has been recorded and mixed in a studio powered by solar energy.

Saunders has had cooperation with e.g. British DJ Choci, under whose record label Choci’s Chewns most of Solar Quest’s early releases were published. The British singer Kirsty Hawkshaw’s vocals can be heard on many of them. A remix collection of Alan Parsons’ song Apollo is among the more obscure Solar Quest releases.

    i remember ten years ago when the orgship record brought me into such an amazing state it was beyond explanation. it was rare then (in sweden) and it seems rare now. the flute on this record is a pretentious phrasing away from suicide. i need to find this record so i can experience again. expansion would be a good term to summarize my experience with this record with. thank you.

    Orgship - Весьма и весьма замечательная пластинка! Чувствуется у кого когда то учились Carbon Based Lifeforms.

    Orgship целиком великолепен.Нет аналогов. 15 лет уже слушаю этот альбом-не надоел ни капли-реально КорабльОргазма. Другого альбома с подобным эффектом не назову...

    "Singtree" and "Save the whale" are wonderful... I've heard them in the end of 90s and love till this time. These songs drown to exotic aether which is very soft and beatiful. I love his "Acid air raid" too. Great oldschool acid work.
