Another magic compendium of Ariel Kalma: a box with 4 LPs including different coloured inner sleeves, a large booklet with credits and beautiful unreleased photos, illuminating perfectly the depth of his traveling soul. Few, like Ariel, have really been able to dedicate their life to a tireless experimentation in music. In according to a subtle plot, between his experiences in the world and the restitution of them, he has always found multifaceted combinations of sounds. Kalma uses anything that can stimulate his impressions, expanding his action without boundaries: church bells, dilated flutes, tape machine, drum machine, Revox loops, Flanger, reverberations, war drums, modular and wasp synth, Yamaha Ps.20, Farfisa. etc. Through the 4 LPs of the collection, his mind undergoes significant changes, almost corresponding to 4 different moments or states of consciousness. In 'Delirium GRM' he paints his personal dark side of the Trip, operating for crazed de-temporalizations and de-specializations: obsessive hallucinations, wastelands of spectral visions, fractals of darkness or alien caverns. Conversely, in 'Dream Stars', the galactic ascension (Schulze/Ash Ra Temple) becomes happy and luminous in its take-off and landing phases. The cosmic electric Gnawa, in 'Rue De La Gaite', reveals an even more calm spirit, with amazing stylistic intersections between India, Turkey and Morocco, and makes use of some exceptional guests including Loy Ehrlich (Hadouk Trio). 'Kula Confidential' translates the vibes of his journey on the island of Maui, between mantra sax and ocean waves, memories of primitive and ancient populations and silent archaeological atmospheres.
