    My InterpretationThis instrumental interlude, dedicated to gorgeously melodic minimalist composer Harold Budd, appears to be the passage of death itself. The slow pulse feels like the breath of plants, the passage of seasons, the breath of the Earth.The passage of the Soul from one body to another, the mysterious slow pulse of Eternity (the song fades in as well as out, suggesting infinity).

    The song is an unusual 5/4+9/4 alternating meter, lending a unique feel of asymmetry to the procession into Nothingness. It is a piece of genuine "ambient" music, a genre with which Eno would be increasingly associated.
