  1. Waspeggios Mysterioso, 5:51  Arpeggios from a Yamaha Portasound PS-20 mixed with a Wasp synthesiser and flanger effects. Recorded live during a relaxation session.

  2. SiDoSi SiSolSol, 14:46 One of Ariel's repetitive pattern is based on the lyrics of a song 'Flamadanse' written for a grieving friend with an analogy to the fire in a fireplace: Dancing flames are like love, sometimes almost not visible, sometimes roaring with energy. This is a variation on the notes of that song.

  3. Woman Is Powerful Ambient Mix,16:09 Ariel found this older ambient music archive on a cassette. Out of the blue comes this voice talking about Woman being powerful.... then the voice disappears... it must have been on a prerecorded cassette..."Recorded in the beginning of 1980's with a Yamaha Portasound PS-20, a Wasp synthesiser, flutes and vocals during a tantra workshop as I was music director with Margot Anand, chosing music and playing live... probably in one go as I used to do at that time..."

  4. Planet Air Portasound, 8:15 Another version of 'Planet Air', inspiring piece composed on a church pipe organ and featured on the LP Osmose. This time it is with the Yamaha Portasound PS-20, a Wasp synthesiser and effects.
