Essentially identical to the the studio version, though a touch shorter and with a more forward guitar lead by Gerald Gradwohl and scattered percussion effects by Emil Hachfeld. This track has a more purposeful, driving sound than the relatively laid-back sounding studio version.
Essentially the same as the official The Keep CD version; currently the only known live post-release outing for a track from the TDI CD of The Keep. (Several tracks that appear on the album appeared live first.)
Essentially the same as the album version, though the guitarwork is even more frantic.
(All times rounded to nearest 15 seconds and include bridges following song, if any.)

Tangerine Dream performed this one-off concert during the Klangart Festival in Osnabrück in Northern Germany, presenting the then brand-new album Mars Polaris. The complete album was performed, though the track order differs from that on the album. Some older compositions were included in the main set and the encores.
As on the 1997 Europe tour and on the 1997 UK tour, drummer Emil Hachfeld was part of the live line-up. In an interview with Thomas Adam for the German "Sticks" magazine he told about his musical contributions. According to this interview the TD drum set was a quite uncommon combination of proven parts and custom-built components that impressed not only visually: There was no e-drum set, but some small pads, real cymbals, a well filled rack and, first of all, six 'tin drums' (Codotronics) with imposing measures. Hachfeld: "I can hear the base sounds, like kick and snare drum originating from the sequencer, well enough to play accordingly. Initially I had intended to use headphones, but then I found that being too spaceship-like. To tell the truth, there are parts that make it rather difficult -- when songs start very spare with only synthesizer pads or too little time -- in these cases I have to listen carefully. [...] TD originate from improvisation. Their original idea was to spontaneously invent sounds on the stage and respond to each other. Given the intended improvisional part this approach makes sense, as it peps up the whole thing a bit. And it creates some visual balance between the two keyborders in the center of the stage and the guitar and drums besides. [...] The samples originate from the TD library completely; they are set by Christian Gestettner, our drum tech, to the Akai sampler that is used to full capacity though upgraded with maximum memory."
Sadly, this gig was the last one with Emil Hachfeld cause he died only one year later.
