Composed by Ariel Kalma in the early 80’s, Open Like A Flute utilises Indian raga stylings and breathy drones to create a beautiful work of not-quite ambience. Flute and saxophone take the lead exploring luminous, cosmic tones. Far out. Out on vinyl 2LP from Black Sweat. Limited to 300 copies.
Ariel Kalma produced this meditative stretch of spiritual drone in the early 1980’s, taking a love for Indian raga and translating it into synthesisers, organs and tape. The resulting Musique Pour Le Rêve Et L’Amour recalls Terry Riley and possibly even La Monte Young in its ambient drone focus. Double LP reissue on Black Sweat Records.
Ariel Kalma produced the sounds we hear on Interfrequence in 1980, using a brace of synthesisers. While elsewhere in his catalogue he stretched out long-form, this collection contains 18 shorter pieces, like individual approaches to space-sound. Features some collaborations with M. Saclays. LP reissue on Black Sweat Records.
Ariel Kalma's warm new age tones conveyed more depth and precision than your average artist working towards ambient bliss. His work combined multiple disciplines that jarred and modulated otherwise still life soundscapes -- jazz and poetry were often present, as well as his constant, sustained electronic work. 'An Evolutionary Music' shows his purposely anonymous and ambiguous music upfront.
‘We Know Each Other Somehow’ is a collection of original compositions by Robert Aiki Aubery Lowe (aka Lichens) and French born, multi genre composer Ariel Kalma. Recorded in a remote area on the outskirts of the Eastern Australian coast, the album consists of two electronic synthesised compositions of ambient spiritual exploration.
New age innovator Ariel Kalma meshed together instruments and electronic effects to create tones that sounded jarring but warming at the same time. His 1975 debut, Le Temps Des Moissons, shows his experiments in their primordial state, with a lot of Eastern influence seeping into each composition.
