Woman is the most powerful person in the world!


Space Trance Ambient

During the 80’s Ariel travelled as music director for Margot Anand Tantra workshops and also played live with his portable setup : Modified Yamaha Portastudio PS-20 keyboard, Wasp synthesiser, 4 track cassette recorder/mixer, microphone and effects.

1. Waspeggios Mysterioso, Arpeggios from a Yamaha Portasound PS-20 mixed with a Wasp synthesiser and flanger effects. Recorded live during a relaxation session.

2. SiDoSi SiSolSol, One of Ariel's repetitive pattern is based on the lyrics of a song 'Flamadanse' written for a grieving friend with an analogy to the fire in a fireplace: Dancing flames are like love, sometimes almost not visible, sometimes roaring with energy. This is a variation on the notes of that song.

3. Woman Is Powerful Ambient Mix, Ariel found this older ambient music archive on a cassette. Out of the blue comes this voice talking about Woman being powerful.... then the voice disappears... it must have been on a prerecorded cassette..."Recorded in the beginning of 1980's with a Yamaha Portasound PS-20, a Wasp synthesiser, flutes and vocals during a tantra workshop as I was music director with Margot Anand, chosing music and playing live... probably in one go as I used to do at that time... "

4. Planet Air Portasound, Another version of 'Planet Air', inspiring piece composed on a church pipe organ and featured on the LP Osmose. This time it is with the Yamaha Portasound PS-20, a Wasp synthesiser and effects.
