                           "Glacier Dream"

     It all started long ago, during a chat with Razfaz, himself
      creator of very fine and technically brilliant songs (hey,
      respect where respect is due). He uses OSS' echo function
       excessively, playing it as a rhythmic echo that repeats
                          every quarternote.

      We talked about the problem that, using echo this way, the
        echo of a bassdrum is right "over" the next beat, thus
       killing much of the "kick" of that bassdrum. Back then I
         said that I'd like to try some sort of ambient tune
         (without drums) to play with the beauty of that echo
             function and see how it works out this way.

     Some idle afternoon I remembered that chat and started with
     some extremely wacky-sounding 5 or 6 patterns. The fragment
      lay there on my HD, I didn't want to delete it (after that
     shitty work of finding the correct delay value according to
     the 110 bpm), and I couldn't find the motivation to continue
                             it, either.

       What you are hearing now is, about half a year after the
       first steps, the result of my constant idleness :) - the
     basic patterns and ideas are still there, yet I changed many
      many instruments and re-arranged the whole thing many many
     times. Concerning this part, I believe that I never put more
                 work into a damn song than this one.

     The rest is rather simple. I used this rhythmic echo to play
       single notes following my "allround" scale Es-Major, and
       these add up to some sort of chords by echoing into the
         following notes. I found that "technique" (uuuhhhm)
         extremely catchy during composing as you'll hear. :)

         During composing it was indeed my intent to let some
       harmonic development in the arrangement "unfinished" and
        return to the start of the sequence, as so to keep the
     listener waiting for more to happen. One might say that the
     monster climax the song reaches doesn't fit the arrangement,
     and I partially agree with that, after all it was just a try
      which carried me away, but in the end I was so touched by
      the simplicity and power of that part, and that led me to
                    keeping it the way it is now.

           I hope you enjoy this song as much as I do now.
