    A really interesting guy - a pioneer with his own style and philosophy, producing ranging avantgarde and EAM to Vangelis:ian and New Age. A few years ago he sold the pink house/studio and donated the instruments and gear to a museum in his name. Sadly the plans were cancelled and the stuff is held in storage, with no immediate plans what to do with it.

    A ballet/performace based on a selection of his music:

    More Ralph... from a Swedish kids' TV show from 1975 (those were the days )

    Jump to 6 min to see his polyphonic sequencer with a piano roll editor - almost 15 years before Steinberg Pro 24

    Neat videos on Lundsten. It's too bad the museum fell through. It would be nice to have everything on view somewhere rather than a dusty storage. I don't know if anyone cares for Harold Budd, I personally enjoy his music very much. I ran across this the other day where he talks about the equipment and process he uses a bit. Amazingly he still uses a Casio 202. I wondered why he hasn't upgraded (or perhaps he has by now).


    I was looking at a couple of interesting keyboards today: the Korg PA700 and the Casio Privia PX560.

    Thank's for the link - I've been very much influenced by Harold Budd!

    I was very very excited to see him this past March @ Big Ears, and was disappointed that he actually did very little. I don't blame him, I think he simply doesn't have the energy he once did.

    I was just listening to The Room and Abandoned Cities earlier today in fact

    Heck yeah. It was surprising to me that he was willing to come out at all.
