Gulan is the pseudonym of a composer from Latvia who creates wide-ranging electronic music - ambient meditation space music, new age and progressive electronica. 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.

Gulan devoted much time to practical experience of meditation as well as for creating the background music for those activities.
