Harold Budd, Simon Raymonde, Robin Guthrie, Elizabeth Fraser - The Moon and the Melodies (1986)

The sound of the wind humming in telephone wires was a formative influence on American composer Harold Budd. No surprise then, that his early works included experiments in drone music.
Budd, (b 1936), an important figure in ambient music, has collaborated with a variety of artists including Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois, Andy Partridge, John Foxx and David Sylvian.
In 1986 he teamed up with Scottish 4AD darlings Cocteau Twins...
