Review

Ariel Kalma is the kind of musician that collectors live their lives to find at the bottom of a dollar record bin, and the kind who fellow musicians hope to become. He is a composer who worked on the periphery of a fringe movement, whose early adherents have recently seen an explosion in popularity...

Ariel: “as a kid I could never get enough turns on the merry-go-rounds of Paris: I remember the slow start, then turning faster and faster until the world spined as my head did… so I composed a ‘turning’ musical progression which could be played at various speed”. Recorded 1976 while practicing to play at the Paris Planetarium and working on LP Osmose.

Ascend Descend

Ariel tuned the stereo effect of an electric piano to induce relaxation by tricking the two brain hemispheres into ‘thinking’ there are two distinct signals (the delay between both sides) so the mind can let go… That’s what some Tibetan monks call “keeping the monkey mind busy”.

Available only as Download.

Around 1982 Ariel had a portable recording system to travel with as he was part of therapeutic groups in whichhe created environments for self-development. Indeed, they were inspirations to create sounds carrying healing, trance, relaxation, journey…

Originally conceived for film and TV in 1980, theses pieces grew in popularity as time passed... maybe because of their rare appearances? Remastered in 2015, Interfrequence has now a new life. May those pieces inspire The Dreaming.

Electronic sounds can be tuned to create harmonic sounds. Echoes finely tuned create multi-layered rhythms. During the late 1970s in Paris, several young composers experimented mixing instruments with electronics, synthesisers, analog loops, and effects. Ariel Kalma combined Oriental tuning and his interest in high frequencies as brain cleanser, to create his version of space music - the kind you can take off with.

Meditation in the Forest   Reallusions

Birds and nature sounds are the ambient inspiration for this album, accompanied by modal keyboards, synth, flutes, saxophones and voices. Ariel composed with the forest's melodies and rhythms like in his 1978 cult album Osmose. Another breath of fresh air to relax, go inside and connect with all existence.

Hallucinations are perceptions with no real counterpart. What is real? An instance of a misinterpreted perception? A deceptive appearance or impression? A false idea or belief? This music wishes to open the door behind the mirror of illusions. You might see Alice, a white rabbit, a flying pig, a pink elephant... are you dreaming?
