Music lost a great one today, Harold Budd.  Here is Todd's Interview from 2019. 

Composer Harold Budd sat down with Todd Steed at the Big Ears Festival and reflected on his latest works, Knoxville, Stan Getz, ACME, and the lack of choice dining options in Joshua Tree. 

The interview was conducted in the lobby of his hotel.  Please free free to enjoy the extra ambience.
