There is a mysterious, Far-Eastern flavor to this song, played entirely in open harmonic fifths, in C Major and A minor keys, with overlapping pedal throughout. There are basic quarter, half, and whole note rhythms, soft dynamics, slow tempo, and use of the higher and lower registers of the keyboard.
