Harold Budd (Heavenly Monkey 2010)

Four new poems by the American composer and musician. To accompany the poems Harold created four copper plate etchings, which in style and theme continue his exploration of the enigmatic "arabesques" designs that previously appeared in Colorful Fortune and Carnival. Each etching is named for a film director: Akerman, Cocteau, Jarman and Anger.
