I think it's all in one consistent time signature and has a steady pulse. What's deceiving is the hemiola of the rhythms and the overall improvised nature of the melody with the ehhh...ethnic horn thing...
Yup seems that way. It's also fairly slow so I'd say the tempo is around 70-80bpm. Try counting. I counted that first intro note and then began counting with a steady and slow 4/4 pulse, and it seems to fit. Begin counting ONE (start on that second chord/note), two, three, four, repeat (or look for a metronome and set it around 70/80 and count). May seem deceiving at first because that synth like instrument which seems to be the driving melody in the intro skips that first accent (silence) but if you keep counting the accents will begin to fall in place.
So yeah anyway, I'm assuming it's in 4/4 (not counting that first beat) and around 70-80bpm (I'll take a wild guess and say 75 because it's the average :d)
