No Longer Showing.
Pioneering composer Harold Budd returns to The Kitchen and presents new music and poetry with keyboardist Bradford Ellis and artist Jane Maru, featuring verse from Budd’s seventh book of poetry, titled Aurora Tears (Heavenly Monkey Press).
During the 40 years since Pavilion of Dreams, the first of his three groundbreaking collaborations with Brian Eno, Budd has recorded more than 40 albums, traversing a wide range of colors and sounds, from lush synthesized melodies and haunting string quartets to spare and beautiful compositions defined by his “soft pedal” piano style. Budd’s music eludes classification, though it has been described as “like the Southwest desert landscapes of his youth, possessing a thin veneer of serenity, yet masking a mood that is dark and dangerous.”
Bradford Ellis is a composer/arranger/keyboardist/producer who has performed with many avant-garde ensembles, and has orchestrated and performed on numerous motion picture and television soundtracks.
Jane Maru is a textile artist and illustrator who has spent many years exploring her craft in the silent, open spaces of the Mojave Desert.
Organized by Tim Griffin as part of the continuing exhibition “From Minimalism into Algorithm.”
