The Room
In a theme reminiscent of 'Pictures at an Exhibition', each track of this track is intended to represent a different artistic unit. In this case, a space and its boundaries (which I'd say is a pretty apt metaphor for an Ambient song). These rooms are designed in various acoustically-suitable sizes. In the center of each is a large polished piano and a comfortable chair. It stands upon creaking oak floorboards, or an ornamental rug, or perhaps a deep white fur carpet. A window, or maybe two, are concealed by venetian blinds, or beads, or thick red velvet curtains. The walls too are adorned with ruddy paintings in black frames, or vines gripping to cream-white brick, or perhaps a single golden tapestry. Mr. Budd beckons us into each, and as we sit and observe, he enchants us with his skills of play and post-production. A lazy afternoon well spent. Copies of the album can still be found here and there, now and again.
