Gulan "Gulan composes hypnotic and emotive music that interacts with the listener's spirit" Terry Hawke.

Not much is known about him apart from a few basic facts about his nationality and age. He was born in Latvia in 1974.

After finishing a music-school on a class of the piano, Gulan took private lessons on playing electronic key-instruments. The introducing himself with synthesizers and playing on them have allowed the young musician to plunge into the world of synthetic sounds and harmony of electronic music. The first piece of music composed by him in 1993 was named Airway. Some more beautiful songs followed already in the same year, Electronic symphony, Sunrise, Electronic etude among them.

His compositions are full of nice sounds and phrases creating cosmic associations. Interesting combinations of synthetic and acoustic sounds and effects, unusual constructions of musical phrases and melodies give to his music its originality and mysteriousness.

Gulan devoted much time to practical experience of meditation as well as for creating the background music for those activities. Such music is also called ambient or meditation music, the task of which according to Gulan is to help to relax the mind and to plunge into the depths of consciousness. Gulan's music easily performs this task and help people to reach meditative condition-those ambient songs, so abstract and atmospheric, help the mind and body to be relaxed, simply-to be.
