Avant Gard Composer Harold Budd dies aged 84

December 9th, 2020

I am sad to hear that the great composer, musician and master of minimalism, Harold Budd has left us.

The beauty of his work was a gift to us all, calm and understated. I have spent endless hours listening to his collaborations with the Cocteau Twins and Brian Eno, which are sublimely elegant compositions. From the many gems he produced, for me it is The Pearl, that remains an unsurpassed masterpiece of its genre.
