Moonlight Suite

Relaxing Inspiration

In 1983 Ariel moved from Paris to Hamburg to live with his sweetheart. He bought a 4 track ¼” tape recorder and composed Moonlight as a suite of vignettes illustrating Shamballa, the land of silence and bliss. Nightingale Records (his publisher at that time) needed a new age version called Rainbow, so Ariel added birds to the mix when they published a cassette (Ariel was not satisfied with the sound quality though). Then he left for Hawaii, raised a son and did not remix and remaster until… 2018. This time (almost) no birds.
