2020, you unrelenting bastard. Now you've taken Harold Budd from us. An icon in ambient music.
There's not much I can say right now except that I love his music. I have about 25 albums by Harold Budd. His music has been with me for more than 40 years. When I heard the news I knew the only proper tribute I could do was a mix. So here it is an hour-long mix that barely scratches the surface of his output.
Godspeed Harold, your music remains in our ears and on the wind.
