An Evening with Harold Budd

Showing on January 23, 2016

Playing at

Harold Budd, 2016 PuSh Festival

Harold Budd (USA)

Harold Budd‘s music eludes classification, though it has been described as “like the Southwest desert landscapes of his youth, possessing a thin veneer of serenity, yet masking a mood that is dark and dangerous.” During the 40 years since Pavilion of Dreams, the first of his three groundbreaking collaborations with Brian Eno, Budd has recorded more than 40 albums, traversing a wide range of colors and sounds, from lush synthesized melodies and haunting string quartets to spare and beautiful compositions defined by his “soft pedal” piano style.

Budd will be accompanied by Bradford Ellis, a composer/arranger/keyboardist/producer who has performed with many avant-garde ensembles, and has orchestrated and performed on numerous motion picture and television soundtracks. And Vancouver’s very own poetess, Veda Hille—co-curator of Club PuSh—will join them on stage to read a selection Budd’s poetry.
