Wired - Harold Budd "Avalon Sutra"

07.08.05

For 30 years, Budd has played music that shimmers on the edge of silence. His albums with Brian Eno launched the genre known as ambient, and the reclusive pianist says that Avalon Sutra is his final recording. It’s a triumphant sign-off. Scored for string quartet and sax as well as piano, Budd’s musings on loss and memory are luminous, and an hour-long remix on a bonus disc by avant-pop master David Sylvian and loop guru Akira Rabelais glows with autumnal majesty.
