Chord confusion

Questions about producing? Ask them here.
I am working on a cover, Vangelis - Alpha

Tried my best but got stuck at the build up, then found a midi file.

A part of this is confusing me.

I don't seem to be able to find what chord this is? ( piece is in C# )

Any thoughts on this? Is it a chord ? Or just allot of keys in scale ?

Looks like two stacked chords with a base note below it ?

The original, were this part starts at 1.44.

As always learning allot from this, and getting even more respect for Vangelis. It sounds so simple, but its not simple at all.

Is it a chord ?
yes C#min
All the other notes are doublets to give more 'fullness' to the C#min

You find the 'naked' Cmin from 2. note from bottom.
Thats a C#
3 notes up
Thats a D
4 notes up
Thats a G#

Then he adds a helper note (bottom) to 'widen' the chord, and finally he repeats the whole C#min one octave up
Thank you :)

Now it starts to make sense.
Watching this vid, very interesting.

Totally reminds me of were and how I got stuck. ( I as always refuse to copy past midi notes from a midi file I have )

I want to understand what is happening, and how this track builds up, is were I loos track every time.

Respect for Vangelis and I ones again manage to pick a damn hard track to cover. :(

Why do I keep dong that ? :P
