As the name already shows, "First Steps" is the first album of Oliver Ganz. Equipped with just a single Synthesiser Workstation, at that time a Korg 01/W, and a simple DAT Recorder, the complete CD was produced. Actually "First Steps" was a 1 Man-production. Nevertheless the character of "First Steps" is strongly characterized by an earlier interplay with several musicians. Ian Brown had the clearest influence.
"First Steps" is a very quiet, not really fault-free album in the Style of Ambient, New Age, Chillout. Musical experiments within melodic areas are at the agenda. "Feelings" is a track that shows the typical essence of Oliver Ganz's typical compositions. It was produced within half a year by just writing down a couple of notes whenever there was a little time for it. It didn't matter what was written before or would be written after this.
After all, the result is a title with a complete playback-time of almost 12 minutes which represents frames of mind of its author in many small portions. "Sadam Hussein" was a very own way from Oliver Ganz to process the gulf war then. I somehow knew even then that there will be another war in the gulf region and that Hussein disappears ... "Synthronic" shows a clear influence of Jean Michel Jarre. Part 1 and Part 2 of Synthronic are on "First Steps", up to today the parts 3-6 were never published.
