ABOUT HAROLD BUDD:
Emerging from the 60s US avant-garde and originally influenced by the likes of John Cage and Morton Feldman, Harold Budd rebelled against the heavily conceptual works of his peers to explore his own artistic path of "existential prettiness". His early work caught the ear of Brian Eno, who invited him to England to record his first commercially released work The Pavilion Of Dreams (Obscure – 1978). This working relationship continued over the next decade, producing landmark works such as The Plateaux Of Mirror (EG – 1980) and The Pearl (EG – 1984). He went onto collaborate with other like-minded souls including the Cocteau Twins, John Foxx and Jah Wobble, and release an impressive stream of delicately constructed solo works, many of which have been issued on All Saints. Now resident back in his native California, Harold has recently completed the soundtrack to Gregg Araki’s latest film White Bird In A Blizzard (with longtime musical companion Robin Guthrie) and released an audio companion to the work of visual artist Jane Maru.
