Ambient Soundbath Podcast #82 – Abandoned Cities

Recently, I found myself listening to two long-form Harold Budd tracks in succession, on repeat, over and over for several weeks. Those tracks included Dark Star and Abandoned Cities, two sides of the same 1984 recording called, Abandoned Cities. These tracks have been part of a larger 200+ track Harold Budd playlist that I’ve listened to in ‘shuffle’ mode for the better part of a decade; I had never listened to these tracks in succession, as they were meant to be heard.

After repeated listens, I decided that their distinctly transfixing and meditational qualities, mixed with the organ drone of Coeur D’Orr from 1970‘s The Oak of Golden Dreams were perfect for an Ambient Soundbath. Frankly, I could do a deep listening podcast on Harold Budd’s work alone, but I thought that these tracks made for an excellently relaxing Soundbath.

00:00 – 19:00 – Harold Budd – Dark Star
19:00 – 22:30 – Harold Budd – Coeur D’orr
22:30 – 45:00 – Harold Budd – Abandoned Cities

Enjoy.
