KJ: I dug up another Harold Budd. A CD called La Bella Vista. Have you seen this one? I think he's playing a Steinway on it instead of the usual synthesizer. Plenty of those nice haunting notes to crawl into and dream up sentences and stories inside of.

Jeff,

Thanks! I haven't seen this one. His stuff is really hard to find over here. I have to order it. I listened to the samples on Amazon and liked it heaps.

I always thought it was an actual piano he played, but put through all kinds of electronic treatment so that it sounds like a really good synth...

Kirsten, Jeff - from a music mailout thing I get -

HAROLD BUDD & ERALDO BERNOCCHI-Music for Fragments From the Inside CD (Sub Rosa/SR239) $20.99
Recorded live on what can only be assumed was a warm and expansive Italian night, 'Fragments From The Inside' sees the coming together of incredible Pianist / ambient master Harold Budd (several wonderful collaborations with Brian Eno on his resume) and long-time Bill Laswell collaborator Eraldo Bernochhi, with Music For Fragments From The Inside. Music For Fragments... unfurls with loquacious grace; a fact that is cemented on the opening 'One'. So whilst in the foreground a beautiful Benno Moiseiwistshca-esque piano part is allowed time to languidly gather momentum, on the fringes Bernocchi punctures the ambient membrane with buckshot's of garbled digitalis that create a thrilling juxtaposition which comes off a treat. Elsewhere, 'Four' assumes a similar perspective (albeit with the machines winning round two) to the opening composition, 'Six' betters Jenkinson's 'Iambic 9 Poetry', whilst 'Two' is a laustrophobic coalition of fidgeting beats and classical flourishes. Closi!ng with the slow burn marathon of (you guessed it) 'Seven', Bernocchi and Budd have created a soothing aural balm that whilst undoubtedly honeyed, has enough piquant bite to keep your head engaged. Amazing music. key points * long awaited new album by Harold Budd who is considering as an 'ambient pioneer' * a top-of-the-range meeting between the lightness of Harold Budd piano and Eraldo Bernocchi deep electronics * music for Palazzio ! no doubt, a 5***** record

Thanks, Neddal! I'd heard that Budd wasn't going to record any more studio albums. If that was ever true, I'm glad he changed his mind.

I've discovered a beautiful album, 'Duality' by Lisa Gerrard (formerly of Dead Can Dance) and Pieter Bourke. Wonderful vocals, with a Middle Eastern feel to some of the songs; reminds me a bit of Loreena McKennitt, though darker and less folky. I feel like I've come about ten years late to Gerrard, but better late than never, I guess.
