MULE DRIVER

MULE DRIVER

Mule Driver is the pseudonym of Jerusalem based musician/ producer Harel Schreiber. Schreiber started his flirt with music in high school. He played guitar and bass in various rock bands but soon enough moved on to experiment with computers and analog synthesizers. These experiments birthed his debut album, "Microscopic Moves" (Ak Duck 2003), which indicated his love for the naive, slightly melancholic, sounds of 70's electronica. Without intending or having it as a cultural reference at the time, "Microscopic Moves" sounded like a collection of composition that had been dusted of the shelves of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop and carefully re modeled for the IDM generation. Mule's interest with synthesizer experiments can also be heard in his latest release "The Proud Ones" (SOTR 2006). In this aforementioned EP, he created a lush pool of analog sounds that bring to mind the mental synthesizer constructions & stretches of newly discovered 70's maestro, Edmond De Dyster. The EP is based on the theme of long forgotten 50's western "The Proud Ones". Mule Driver revisited the touching theme & landed four variations that work as one circular/ hypnotic whole. Parallel to his solo career, Schreiber is a member of two Jerusalem based groups: dub infected bass – electronics – vox trio, Mujaheedin and techno – electro trio, The Models. In his spare time, Schreiber studies in Bezalel Art Academy, DJ's and remixes various musicians from Jerusalem's vibrant experimental scene
