Review

Ariel Kalma is the kind of musician that collectors live their lives to find at the bottom of a dollar record bin, and the kind who fellow musicians hope to become. He is a composer who worked on the periphery of a fringe movement, whose early adherents have recently seen an explosion in popularity...

Serenity
surrounds the listener with the mystical world of sound, silence and deep relaxation.

Ariel's music is a simple and natural synthesis of East and West, with classical and jazz elements.

These poetic compositions take us from the beat of every day life to a world of timeless harmonies.

Instrumentation includes saxophone, flutes, synthesizers, harps and voices.

Ariel Kalma's music is varied in inspiration and genre, but Serenity is a bit different from 
his other albums. When these tracks were composed, Ariel had a new-born son,
and a baby is an amazing source of inspiration. Peace, hush sounds, a lullaby feeling and especially the musical mobiles, toys, bells with which father and son played. Ariel sometimes included them in some of those pieces. 

Ariel plays keyboards, flutes, saxophone, synthesiser, effects.
(Gene King - Satiyarti - plays guitar and Bill Stroud plays low congas on Dance of the Elves)

A relaxed saxophone on a journey to peaceful shores.

Keyboards electronica in space, a simple melody weaving a pleasant trip.

3. Mother and Child
Mother carries her new born baby in a gentle and soothing embrace - recorders and saxophone play gentle melodies celebrating life.

A dolphin and a wave guide us towards a garden in the cosmos. Space music.

Flute, keyboards and rhythms in joyous, delicate moves.

Composed especially for Ariel's son, a mixture of soft and strong parts with flute and saxophone.

Variations on part 1 with a soft keyboard and effects.

8. Appel des Etoiles
Space is vast, time expands - There is another dimension calling - spacy synthesisers and a high pitched bamboo flute on their way to infinity.
