1 Le Temps des Moissons - Music of the morning and end of afternoon for one tenor saxophone, harmonium, wah-wah pedal & long delay space/time feedback effect - only active loops, no overdubs. Here we can hear the Indian influence of the composition: an introduction starting softly, slowly building up the theme, tuning each note and fine tuning the echoes, creating a space from where the theme can be exposed. Then the rhythmic part takes over and develops. Ariel added a third part, which is not in the Indian tradition, but more present in literature: a conclusion where the saxophone let go and disappears into space.

1 Le Temps des Moissons - Music du matin et fin d'après midi pour saxophone ténor, harmonium, pedale wah-wah, et effet de long echo espace/temps - boucles actives seulement, pas de surimpositions. Ici on peut entendre l'influence Indienne de la composition : une introduction débutant doucement, batissant lentement le theme, accordant chaque note et les echoes créant un espace d'où le theme est exposé. Puis la partie rythmique prend place et se développe. Ariel ajouta une troixième partie qui n'est pas dans la tradition Indienne, mais présent en litérature : une conclusion où le saxophone se laisse aller et disparaît dans l'espace.
