Product Description

Product Description

This album represents a meeting of two musicians who each work at the boundaries of their respective fields. Budd and Foxx have long been engaged by each others work, and eventually recorded together in the Autumn of 1996. These two CDs, "Translucence" (disc one) and "Drift Music" (disc two), are the record of those sessions.

I think I died and went to heaven !...a NEW double album of 27 ambient compositions by Harold Budd & John Fox what more could we ever need?. Disc One TRANSLUCENCE is classic Budd, beautiful compositions with a touch as light as a feather...even this would be a major cause for celebration for the fact that Harold Budd has returned to the classic ambient style of THE PEARL, but there is another disc DRIFT MUSIC where John Fox's ambient soundscapes combine brilliantly with Budd's ambient piano to make one of the most spin-chilling listening experiences I have ever heard..this is truly ' drift music '. This is a collaboration that truly blended into ambient heaven..dont miss this release which by the way comes in a lovely digi-pack. This must surely be ' Album of the Year ' !.

Harold Budd met John Foxx when he attended one of Foxx's performances of his "Cathedral Oceans" ambient work. Out of that grew this collaboration. A very easy-on-the-ear offering, packaged in stunning artwork, the first disc ("Translucence") is largely given over to Budd, with his piano phrasing as limpid and dreamy as ever. The second disc ("Drift music") shows more of Foxx's influence and has a more electronic sound. In fact, Foxx seems to be shaping up as one of the best interpreters of ambient music. The music changes gradually and slowly as in many of Brian Eno's best works (unlike, say, Jean Michel Jarre's "Cousteau" album where the time changes were far too rapid). Lets hope another collaboration will be on the cards soon.

This is a lovely record (or two in actual fact!). It's ground that has been explored before by the likes of Eno, Cluster and even Tangerine Dream (pre Virgin years). That's not a criticism though, as the first disc showcases some of Harold Budds most beautiful work since 'The Pearl'. The second disc is much more liquid in it's construction and does what it says on the packet...drifts. It's wonderfully relaxing.
The collaboration between Foxx and Budd works superbly. Where as I thought parts of Cathedral Oceans tended to get a bit messy and some of Harold Budd's solo albums could get a tad dry, this is avoids all the pitfalls and delivers the best slice of ambience since the early 90's.

Anyone interested in Ambient music should purchase this amazing
album at once.It is an instant classic and is a return to the likes of Plateaux of Mirror and The Pearl ,two of the most relaxing albums ever made.This music is timeless and will never age, music you will grow old with.This record is up there with the best ambient albums like appollo ,on land,gone to earth for pure relaxation and emptiness,music for meditation,contemplation.
This is great value for money and the artwork and production is fantastic.Two albums for the price of one.The best Budd collaboration since Eno.Surely another album of this quality is in the pipeline.

Translucence is the sound of piano drops falling onto an underworld sea of synthesisers. Glimmers of Satie's Gymnopedies.
On Drift Music the synths swim to the surface -- slightly less piano. A band of silvery fish slowly swimming by, or a pair of eagles floating high up in the sky. Stronger echoes of Brian Eno on these pieces (both Foxx and Budd have worked with Eno in the past).
The album titles are apt. Music to play on a warm day with windows open, translucent curtains slowly moving in the gentle breeze - music to rest with, close your eyes and just drift.
A focused and discreet collection -- but maybe to delicate? The albums could have benefited from some light "treatments" for contrast. Maybe the duo thought of it and found it unsuitable? If Budd and Foxx add some touches of disturbance (Helge Sten from Supersilent?) the next album could be an ambient classic. I hope this is not a one-off partnership.
File with Biosphere and Brian Eno under wonderful ambient music.

From the opening track (which was my reason for buying) you are taken into an ambient music masterclass. Repeated listening reveals the subtleties hidden in each track. John Foxx and Harold Budd have recorded an essential ambient purchase.

One of the best ambiance albums out there.
Have followed Harold Budd since his albums with Brian Eno.
Just lay back and listen, meditate, daydream or play when on a long walk, Brilliant.
Harold Budd's collaborations with other artists are always worth a listen
