Another indispensable compendium of the great french experimental artist's musical opera. With this 4 LPs of archival materials Ariel Kalma ideally retrace the map of his own path and spiritual journey during the '70s. Some of music contained in Sarasvati Planet Ariel, Planet Air, Ascend Descend and Astral Cathedral are born as sound environments for group therapy sessions that carrying healing, trance and relaxation. The occult and arcane music of Kalma awakens consciousness, expands chakras, sculpts memory indelibly, seems to encompass all the emotional aspects of the Universe and brings us back to the archetypal moments of Creation. What impresses is the variety of atmospheric stimuli, the richness source of inspiration and compositional mastery. The solemn, triumphal and liturgical, meditative and ascending tone of celestial chapel organs and harmonium, the darkness of Farfisa and Yamaha Ps-30 lunar and spectral sequences, the exotic oriental breath of circular dances transfigured and dissolving by the specular shapes of the Wasp Synth... everything converges to the purity abyssal of eternity sound. The melodic and harmonic phrases of sax always reveal a deep song, while the solar blow of flute gives elegiac moments of Debussyan flavor as bucolic recalls of fauns from Edens lost. We are struck by equinoxial and solstitial lights, in perfect balance between flares and shadows, Nature and galactic procession. Kalma's sensitive Ear is expressionist, almost a possible scenario for astral architectural utopias of visionaries such as Hablik, Taut, Steiner or Poelzig; it absorbs and re-reads in a personal way some insights of the cosmic psychedelia of the early ‘70s such as K. Schulze, Heldon, Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh.

Genre:Electronic / Dance
Originally composed between 1981 and 1984 and initially appeared only on tape in two different editions, the proposed material from Kalma for this work confirms his pantheistic vision of the ethnic sound that had already emerged in 1978 with the masterpiece Osmose. The deep consciousness of the compositional techniques of Indian ragas it's mixed here with embroidered electronic textures on which flute and sax explore the most secret archetypal elements of nature. In this way Kalma offers to the listener a personal idea of sacred music with luminous and oneirics tones but always dialoguing with a highest cosmic conception of things. With a clever use of effects, harmonium, delays and exotic percussions Kalma becomes the creator of soundscapes from the endless myriad shades.Such a fusion of western avant-garde and eastern traditione approaches the frech musicien to other big names of the international panorama as Popol Vuh, Angus Mclise or Laszlo Hortobagy. The master comes from original 1/4’’ analog tape from the 80’s.Edition in gatefold cover with info.
