2CD set. Exhaustive 2003 collaboration from the ambient pioneers John Foxx and Harold Budd who've worked with Ultravox and Brian Eno. 'Translucence / Drift Music is one of the greatest ambient albums ever made.' FACT MAGAZINE 'Beautifully played and produced.' THE WIRE 'These albums are blissfully abstract Budd's simple piano chords hanging high and reverberating like night cloud flanking empty skyscrapers.' UNCUT 'A succession of tranquil, Eno-esque essays. The music keeps to the ethereal channel which Budd has been effectively ploughing for three decades and into whose delicate wake Foxx seamlessly slips.' MOJO The luminous piano playing of Translucence and the stunning extended reverbs of Drift Music (both originally released in 2003) form a double CD with new artwork by John Foxx. The music has an intelligence, purity and reserve but it's also sensual and dream-like, a feeling that is stretched even further by the gorgeous Drift Music. 'Really I'm Harold's apprentice,' says Foxx. 'Along with Satie, he taught me almost everything I know about this kind of music. What you really look for - that instant when something magical and mysterious crystallizes in the air. I always think of one moment working with Harold as the epitome of this. There's this track on Translucence called Spoken Roses. I still play it and think - I recorded that. It's Harold's music and I was lucky enough to be there to catch it from the air. It's a truly splendid piece, a direct and beautiful interplay between sound and performance. True minimalism is concerned with isolating something dignified and beautiful, presenting it without unnecessary additions, so you can fully appreciate it.' Both artists are keen to do more work together, but as Budd says, 'I have no idea about what's coming up next. I suppose I should be concerned about that. I don't like counselling people to be blasГ©, because if nothing was happening for a long time it would be maddening, but I'm not there yet, so I don't know.'
