ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
RELEASE INFO:
The highly anticipated second Shulman album, "In search of a Meaningful Moment" arrives. This album follows the worldwide success of the first album, "Soundscapes and Modern Tales, which was hailed as "the Israeli answer to Shpongle". In making the new album, Shulman used many ground-breaking sounds and effects, hypnotic beats, and acoustical instruments, all combined brilliantly to create beautiful harmonies, interesting sonic structures, and deep emotional moments.
This album aims at creating a new dimension of daydreaming, allowing the listener to experience the wild rose of winds that connect the mystical east and the modern west. Using sounds, Shulman softly paints the infinite deserts, seas, landscapes, temples and cities that surround us on our greatest life adventure - the search for a meaningful moment.

ARTIST BIO:
The Shulman project, comprised of Yaniv Shulman and later joined by Omri Harpaz, is considered one of the leading groups in the psychedelic chill out and ambient scene and have performed live in large festivals all around the world. Shulman's music is filled with evolving organic layers backed by rich harmonies. With two albums under their belts, the guys are busy working on several new projects at the moment.

In addition, Yaniv is managing Aleph Zero (www.aleph-zero.info), a well respected label, with partner Shahar Bar-Itzhak (aka DJ Shahar). Aleph Zero was created with a vision of releasing and promoting high quality downbeat electronic music, journeying through the realms of ambient, chill out, ethnic sounds and weird electronica.

Shulman represents true innovation of psychedelic ambient and is known for breaking borders and morphing new sounds, with two highly successful albums released. The duo's debut album, "Soundscapes and Modern Tales", released in February 2002 by Shaffel records, received excellent reviews and world-wide acclaim. It is now world famous for the unique moods it creates, audio-visual alchemy, and storytelling.

Their second Shulman album, "In Search of a Meaningful Moment" released in December 2003 by Aleph Zero, became an instant classic. It has received excellent reviews, has expanded Shulman's audience fan base, and has contributed to the establishing of Shulman as a leading group in the electronic music scene.

As a huge fan of Ambient/Chill, and as I continue to explore its many sub-genres, I've found Psychill to be a most stimulating discovery. Shulman must be the forerunner of expertly executed Psychill. It's as if he's including in his CD's as many exciting, weird, and trippy cool sounds as possible. The genius is in how it all gels together.
Quite upbeat for the most part, yet one can easily find oneself dreaming awake. This CD will impress with superb execution of this Psychill genre.

Sonic surprises and flowing soundscapes
This CD is has a lot of nice sonic surprises in it, yet it flows in a laid back way. (Laid back in a good way). It's not too busy, but it's more active than just drones or pads. Each song is unique and has a different mood than the others. The very first song is impressive, majestic, and enthralling; it features a Tibetan throat singer, beautiful synths and hip beats and bass. The other songs are good too.

Shulman are for sure in another league than most other artists when it comes to
Review by PKS
Yaniv Shulman surprised many people when he released his debut album Soundscapes And Modern Tales on Shaffel Records early 2002, with great quality psychedelic chill. Now he is back with his second album on his own label Aleph Zero Records. In this album he has also been collaborating with Omri Harpaz.

Shulman is already well known for fantastic sound quality in his music, and this is no exception. In his first album some people said it was some kind of clone of Shpongle. In my opinion it was for sure inspired by Shpongle, but he did it in his own unique way. This time he has gone his own directions and come up with something total unique and fresh. The first track is a really slow track, almost without beats. Very floating psychedelic sounds. It varies all the way and never become boring. Track 2 is my absolute favourite on this album. Definitely one of the absolutely best chill out tracks released 2003! Ok, you get for sure that Shpongle feeling, with bubbling sounds and relaxed rhythms. Then we get some incredibly nice flute, together with floating beautiful sounds. Relaxed melodies coming and going, with a lot of variation all the way. We also get a part of really nice guitar play. Fantastic track! Track 3 sounds a bit darker. We get some tribal female vocals and beautiful atmospheric sounds. Just totally chilled all the way.

Track 4 is one of the more experimental tracks on this album. Mostly just floating in beautiful sounds. Those sounds we get in there are really psychedelic and pretty weird! We also get some tribal vocals. Track 5 is a really relaxing ambient track, with some Indian flute, beautiful weird sounds, and relaxing rhythms. Track 6 is also really psychedelic and experimental. Shulman sure has gone his own directions here. Great variation of sounds and atmospheres. Track 7 is a short little track, which is the most slow going track on this album. Just beautiful floating sounds. The last track on this album is my other favourite track on this album. This is also definitely one of the best chill out tracks released this year! The floating sounds and melodies in this one are so beautiful! This track reminds me of the style on his first album. Very psychedelic and relaxing, with an ethnic touch and a ton of nice variation.

This album is definitely among the best albums I have heard this year. I also think Shulman has become even better since his first album. Shpongle, Entheogenic and Shulman are for sure in another league than most other artists when it comes to psychedelic chill out these days. Recommended!
