Obscured by Clouds track listing

"Absolutely Curtains" is a mostly instrumental track written by Rick Wright (although it lists the whole band as writers on the Obscured by Clouds album), which closes Pink Floyd's 1972 album Obscured by Clouds.[2][3]


The last part of the track is a chant by the Mapuga tribe of New Guinea recorded for La Vallée,[citation needed] the film to which Obscured by Clouds is the soundtrack.
