Fire On The Mountain

The liner notes of Views From A Red Train about this composition: "An old saying from the ancient Zen period in Eastern Asia. It did describe the development from a normal dialectical person to a personality which has grown spiritually in order to reach a higher level of consciousness. To a Zen master the 'fire on the mountain' is clearly visible. Those thoughts came to the composer's mind by watching a huge bushfire near sydney. Even if it looks terrifying it also mirrors the everlasting change of things within the three dimensional world -- outside and inside."

There are several official versions of this composition:
  • the original studio recording from 2008
  • six slightly different live recordings from 2008 through 2011, respectively
