Interview with Harold Budd

by Nikolozi Meladze

Tim Jonze, writing for The Guardian:

Such enthusiasm seems at odds with the idea of Budd not being a music fan, but it does make a sort of sense. I suggest that this may be what sets him apart from the average listener: that he feels music more intensely, so can't put himself through such highs and lows each day. "I never really thought about that," he says, chuckling again, as if baffled by the sheer mystery of himself. "But you know, it's a very good point. I think I'm going to take that as gospel."

I rarely read artist interviews, as they all seem kind of similar. This, however, was very interesting. Budd doesn't even have his favourite instrument, piano, at home.
