Came across this live on stage interview with my dear, and sadly departed friend Harold Budd, It was conducted in October 2018, only a few weeks before Harold travelled to the UK to be with me for my 70th birthday concert in Leeds. Harold also, graciously, played on three numbers at the event which, I think, probably constitute his last ever live performance.
The interview was done by Kurt Doles at the MidAmerican Centre For Contemporary Music, College Of Musical Arts and is a warm reminder of Harold's personality, his wit and intelligence of which I was privileged to know and share so well for so many years.
But it also brings to the surface the deep sadness I feel as a result of losing him in such unforeseen and cruel circumstances. He was the most precious and brilliant friend I've ever had and I struggle to conquer the grief I feel from losing him.
I don't know how to copy the link to the interview. When I've tried it doesn't seem to work, but here's as much info as I can get. Perhaps someone with more internet/computer savvy will help me out and post a more competent link.
