Info for Pillars of Light



For many years these melodies have haunted me. I recorded many variations along the years. Here are some of them, maybe there will be more in the future, especially if you make your own variation!

Ariel Kalma



Ariel Kalma
French-born composer Ariel Kalma moved through free jazz, progressive rock, drone, minimalism, electroacoustic composition, field recordings, new age and more. Over 4 decades, he published several vinyl LP’s, cassettes, and CD’s. His compositions have been used for modern dance-theatre, films, musical poetry, guided meditations, transformational groups. Ariel Kalma has also played on many albums in France – even throughout Europe, the US and recently Australia, where he lives.

“If you aren’t already familiar with the work of French sound artist Ariel Kalma, check out a few of these descriptors: ambient, new age, drone, Jon Hassell, 70’s, India, SHAVASANA. (Tiny Mix Tapes)

“Ariel Kalma is the kind of musician that collectors live their lives to find at the bottom of a dollar record bin, and the kind who fellow musicians hope to become. He is a composer who worked on the periphery of a fringe movement, whose early adherents have recently seen an explosion in popularity, despite spending the last few decades in relative obscurity. In his youth, Kalma traveled the world experimenting with a vast array of instruments and genres, from free jazz and minimalism to experimental electronic music, fusing them into a completely unique sound that was all his own from the beginning.” (Redefine Mag)

“Tracing the trajectory of French-born musician Ariel Kalma does not yield a straight path. Which makes sense for an artist prone to world travels and crafting a strain of music that acts as a peregrination through numerous musical forms of the late 20th century: free jazz, progressive rock, drone, tape-loop based minimalism, electroacoustic composition, field recordings, new age meditations, and more.” (Pitchfork)
