Inspired by the novel 'Sebastian im Traum' by Georg Trakl.
The piece is about the life history of Sebastian, starting on 'Cellistica' and moving through Sebastian's childhood ('Tango - Saty', 'Amourage' and 'Opheylissem') and adulthood ('Spielglocken') to the dream-summary of what he has learned ('Sebastian im Traum').

The theme that occurs in 'Sebastian im Traum' after about 10 minutes was re-used in 'Freeze' on the album 'Angst'.
