Gulan is the pseudonym of Andrei Gulaikin, an ambient/space musician hailing from Latvia.
It is nicely kicked-off by the title track, split in three parts. Some grand velvet textures merge with some twinkling sequencing while some light solo’s float on top. This rather active part is counter pointed by the free form soundscapes of the second part, which float on in gentle ways.
Next comes the lofty excursions of two-fold “The Infinite” before we arrive at the excellent “Return Home”. This piece has a beautiful fairytale-kindred flavour with nice expanding textures.
This highlight is followed by the same titled second chapter, another strong, drifting piece featuring melancholic undercurrents, entering heavenly spheres.
“Delerium” is again a sequenced, more active track, after which the cd ends with a remix-version of the title-track.
“Cassiopeia” is rather stunning release, so ambient/space fans out there: make sure you don’t miss this one!
