Ariel: “As a kid I could never get enough turns on the merry-go-rounds of Paris: I remember the slow start, then turning faster and faster until the world spined as my head did… so I composed a ‘turning’ musical progression which could be played at various speed”. Recorded 1976 while practicing to play at the Paris Planetarium and working on LP Osmose.
