She Is a Phantom is a set of mournful dirges performed live in concert by Harold Budd. It is a smooth blend of acoustics and electronics with snippets of existential spoken-word poetry. Budd uses some pre-recorded material, but that is the expectation in live music performances of intricate electronic sound designs. Budd's sound design is definitely intricate. The compositions are from Budd's discography, making this a nice introduction to his music. It is also representative of classic minimalism — electronic and otherwise. Budd's stature in the e-music community has him on a level with stalwarts such as Brian Eno, Robert Rich, Steve Roach, and Robert Fripp.
Just plain amazing!
I first heard this cd in Maine while working at a Furniture Store. I quickly became fascinated with it. It's eery music and lyrics are great. "We were way too smart". A must have for people who enjoy out there type stuff. Take a listen.
