Harold Budd RIP

Postby Quiet Visitor on Fri Dec 11, 2020 2:28 pm

Harold Budd, who released Avalon Sutra on David's Samadhisound, died this week.
Budd also worked on the Marco Polo-albums by Alesini & Andreoni, which also features some performances by David and his former Japan-colleagues Steve Jansen and Richard Barbieri.

My favorite album of Budd is The Pearl, which he did with Brian Eno.

David Sylvian also said some nice things about him too on his Twitter.

I completely agree. It's definitely in my top five favourite Harold Budd albums.

Although, for me, his golden period was 1978-2004, his passing was very much a shock. I was really hoping he could have at least released one more stellar solo album beforehand (everything from Mysterious Skin onwards left me nonplussed, with possibly the exception of half of In the Mist).

Very sad to hear of his passing. Ambient 2: The Plateaux of Mirror is a record I've spent so many hours with. Just magical.
