Harold Budd emerged from the 60s school of avant-garde musical composition in the United States. Originally influenced by the likes of John Cage and Morton Feldman, he rebelled against the heavily conceptual works of his peers to explore his own path of "existential prettiness". This short film has been commissioned to celebrate the current series of Harold Budd reissues on All Saints Records.
Trailer produced and edited by Kasumi for Kasumi Films and Microcinema International.
