Harold Budd Abandoned Cities on Limited Edition LP + Download Card

The third artist in the epic All Saints label reissue project is perhaps the most well known. A massively important figure in the history of minimalism and ambient music, Harold Budd emerged from the 60s classical avant-garde. Originally influenced by the likes of John Cage and Morton Feldman, he rebelled against the conceptual works of his peers to explore his own musical path of "existential prettiness."

An early live tape caught the ear of Brian Eno who invited him to London to record his debut commercial release The Pavillion of Dreams. He also collaborated extensively with Eno over the years, including the second volume in the legendary 'Ambient' series (Plateaux of Mirror). In addition to his many critically acclaimed solo albums, he has also worked with The Cocteau Twins, John Fox, Andy Partridge, Jah Wobble and Gavin Bryars.

Abandoned Cities was originally issued in 1984 on Budd’s own label, Cantil. Perhaps the darkest entry in his voluminous back catalogue with a quasi-industrial element to the sonic palette the release features two 20-minute plus tracks that evoke a postapocalyptic soundworld with heavy synth drone and suspended single piano notes. Includes digital download card.
