Aside from being a musician, Kalma seems always to reveal itself as a philosopher, a solitary explorer of higher and deeper consciousness. Persevering in his relationship with Indian classical music, he transfigures the acoustic-ecstatic dimension typical of the raga-tampura by modulating synths and wind instruments. This work, which appeared on two different cassettes in 1981 and 1982, is ideally one unique project. In Musique Pour Le Reve Et L'Amour, Kalma infinitely expands the reverberations of the flute, multiplying the nuances with the phasing and loops of organs that recall the beginnings of Terry Riley. Music For Dream And Love is structured like a oceanic carpet of aquatic and airy reflected sounds, a limitless shore from which seem to be emerging voices of celestial entities. Ariel Kalma's music is always a fine electronic meditation perfumed by warm atmospheres.
