About Ariel Kalma

Mullumbimby, Australia

Ariel Kalma - A musician of the world

Music is in my blood. I love to mix various instruments and elements of different cultures in my compositions. For me music is a language without boundaries, a meeting of souls, melodies and rhythms


Born and raised in Paris, France, Ariel started playing the recorder at age 9 and saxophone at 15. During his successive studies of Electronics, Computer Science, Music and Art in Paris, Ariel performed with several bands, then toured the world and visited Europe, Japan, India, Eastern Canada, and parts of the USA. Apart from rhythm & blues, pop and jazz, he acquired assorted experiences in middle-age French, electro-acoustic, and modal music. All the travels broadened Ariel's musical horizons tremendously; listening to and playing with different styles, people, and instruments, intricate scales, techniques, timing and rhythms

After learning circular breathing from a snake charmer in India, Ariel practiced it on soprano sax - for many sleepless nights - in the basement of a cathedral in New York (when he was not playing upstairs on the large harmonium). Returning to France in late '76, Ariel could include those endless notes into his own long-delay-effect system with which he toured, playing solo concerts. Ariel contributed to the birth of (then) new music genres: minimalist, space, ambient, new age, electronic etc

With his passion for recording and sound, Ariel always had a home studio and was also technical assistant to some of the composers at Paris' GRM - Musical Research Group part of the INA (Audiovisual National Institute), where he recorded some of his compositions

Over 3 decades, Ariel Kalma published several vinyl LP's, cassettes, and CD's, many older ones out of print. 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

In the year 2000 Ariel created his own world-fusion compilation label: Music Mosaic,

Now in French!


Voici Ariel Kalma:

Ariel Kalma s'inspire de rythmes, mélodies, traditions de diverses cultures, d'ambiences acoustiques, de la musique modale, d'instruments traditionnels, et de la nature. Ariel aime experimenter avec les sons musicaux : mixer des sons anciens avec des arrangements modernes, électronique et effets spéciaux ; il aime souffler les instruments a vent et les tubes/didgeridoos en souffle continue, mais aussi créer des sons originaux au synthetiseur. Ariel mélange les styles pour produire des compositions très originales aux saveurs personnelles, touchant des sentiments profonds en une poesie-metaphore

Depuis trois décennies, Ariel Kalma a produit des disques vinyls LPs, des cassettes, et des CD's. Ses compositions sont entendues dans des ouvres de dance-theatre, films, jingles, poesie musicales, compilations, groupes d'éveil, cassettes et CDs de relaxation et d'électronica
En l'an 2000 Ariel créa son propre label de compilations : Music Mosaic, c'est là qu'il choisit des morceaux excellents de styles variés, et les assemble pour un voyage immobile aux quatres coins du monde
