When A Piece Is Done

“When a piece is done, I mix it before going on to any other piece.” Harold Budd

Thank you Ian Brookes FRSA for sharing your insight on the power of collaboration and also for remembering Harold Budd, the American avant-garde composer and poet.

Collaboration is the shared mindset, joined-up thinking and passion for the venture that captures the essence of what makes collaborators produce outstanding work.

Two heads are better than one, collaborators work better together to plug each other’s gaps and to:

– Generate greater clarity around purpose with aligned motives.
– Provide a sounding board.
– Promote active listening.
– Encourage self-analysis, learning, and looking at the bigger picture.

I shall be listening to ‘Sea, Swallow Me’ today.
Rest in peace, poet of the piano.
