OKTAF PRESENTS: MUSIC INSPIRED BY HAROLD BUDD
The US composer and piano player Harold Budd (born 1936) is propably one of the most important figures for todays ambient music. Well known for his spaceful piano playing and his early cooperations with Brian Eno he has inspired a whole generation of protagonists of contemporary ambient, jazz and especially the so called modern classical genre. With “Lost In The Humming Air – Music inspired by Harold Budd” this year the Oktaf Label released an amazing collection of thirteen exclusive tracks made by a selection of some of todays best known ambient music producers giving their tribute to the outstanding piano legend. Curated by Marsen Jules and Rafael Anton Irisari it features tracks by Biosphere, bvdub, Taylor Deupree, Deaf Center and many others. Celebrating the release Oktaf label boss Marsen Jules will come to Stalker Festival with a unique group performance. With Tilman Ehrhorn on saxophone and Flute and Bruno Sanfilippo on piano the Trio will perform an one hour set inspired by Harold Budd.
