Static Movement - Israel (Iboga records/ Iono music)
Shahar Shtrikman, aka Static Movement, is a 27 years old artist, originally from Ukraine and currently living in Israel. Although he immigrated to another country, once he settled in Israel he realized that the thing he was looking for was under his nose all along – Psychedelic Trance. His first Psytrance project was Impulser, which was more Full-On orientated and no longer exists. Three years ago he started a project together with Jonathan Ramon called Noizepulse where they focus on the night time psychedelics. Shtrikman has decided to experiment with a Progressive sound and fell in love calling his new project Static Movement. Static Movement is a project that puts melodies as its manifest, along with complex composition and stirring beats. He works closely with Mute and Invisible Reality, and has released music together with Impact. A strong believer in his path, Shtrikman follows his passion and tries to create what he truly loves with a high sense of perfectionism. He makes sure his music touches each and every person that manages to hear it, deep down to the soul. This does not oblige any movement, but the Static Movement of the mind.
