LE TEMPS DES MOISSONS

Electronica ragas of the 70's.

This has been the first solo recording LP from Ariel Kalma, recorded in 1975. After a long journey to India where he learnt the basics of modal music and singing, Ariel was inspired by the fusion of ancient and modern ways of playing music in the 70s with saxophone, ethnic instruments, effects, electric instruments and electronic filters. As making a record was expensive at that time, when the first thousand records were pressed Ariel run out of money so he bought blank sleeves and one by one, he drew the shape of his hand and numbered each LP. This first pressing is now rare and sought after!

Another detail made this LP memorable because it had not been done before: Ariel convinced the pressing engineer to loop the groove at the end of side 2 - thus creating an endless loop - and although it was casually mentioned on the cover, it caused surprises sometimes by sending listeners into trance. or on some occasions burning the motor of their turntable after endless hours! On this CD, Ariel included a loop of several minutes only, because the LP loop had an audio advantage: as time passed the sound of the loop changed because the diamond eroded the groove.

To the 3 compositions originally on the LP have been added 2 other ones from that period of time.
Note from Ariel : Saxophone is powerful. It has raw sounds that are often filtered, polished for easier listening. I like to let my saxophone sing and when I play, I hear high-pitched, teasing sounds that I like so much. they titillate my senses. If it is too sharp for your ears, adjust your EQ till you are comfortable.

Ceci fut le premier disque solo d'Ariel Kalma, enregistré en 1975. Après un long séjour en Inde où il apprit les rudiments de la music modale et du chant, Ariel fut inspiré par le mélange d'ancients et modernes facons de jouer de la musique, mixant ses saxophones avec des instruments ethniques, des effets, des instruments electriques et des filtres électroniques. A cette époque, faire un disque coutait cher et lorsque le pressage des milles premiers disques fut effectué, Ariel n'avait plus d'argent disponible; il acheta des pochettes blanches et dessina sur lune après l'autre le contour de sa main et numerota chaque disque. Ce premier pressage est rare et recherché de nos jours !

Un autre détail contribua à rendre ce LP mémorable, du fait que cela ne fut pas fait auparavant : Ariel convaincu l'ingenieur du pressage de boucler le sillon à la fin de la plage 2 - créant ainsi une boucle sans fin - Et malgré que ce fut mentionné sur la pochette, créa des surprises : parfois génerant une transe chez l'auditeur. ou en quelques occasions, brulant le moteur de leur tourne-disque après des heures sans arrêt ! Sur le CD, Ariel a inclus une boucle de quelques minutes seulement car le LP bouclé offrait un avantage auditif supplémentaire au CD : en long terme le diamand de la platine usait le sillon un peu plus, provoquant un continuel changement sonore, comme une Reternelle...

Aux trois compositions originellement présentes sur le LP on été ajoutées deux autres de cette période.
Note d'Ariel: le saxophone est puissant. Il a des sons crus qui sont souvent filtrés, polis pour une écoute plus aisée. Dans cet album, j'aime laisser mon saxophone chanter, et lorsque je joue j'entend des sons aigüs, provoquant, et je les aime beaucoup. ils titillents mes sens. Si c'est trop acide pour vos oreilles, réglez votre équalisation jusque ce que vous soyez confortable. »
