A pleasing piece of minimalist ambient from the guru of the genre, featuring pianist Harold Budd. The bare soundscape is created using just a studio-treated piano. It's not really listening music, in fact I've only used it in a new-agey relaxing way to get to sleep. As far as I can tell though, short snatches of melodies just bubble away delicately, without ever coming together. Goes well with the dimly-lit impressionist art on the cover.
