This is another variation, in this case of measures 9-16 of the Aria. There are lots of leading tones in the Aria, most of which are a 15/16 away from the key of the chord. When these notes are combined into a cluster, it makes for a very strong major 7th chord: 8:10:12:15/8. Since I can make them slide the 15:8 to the 1:1 (key of the chord), they have a very nice feeling of resolution. And it sounds more and more like Harold Budd. I like Budd.
