Rites of Passage is a solo project by Kirill Stepanov, who’s also a part of a dream-rave trio Elektricheskaya Sobaka and co-founder of Morpheus Radio. His debut LP “Precursor” is a compilation of sonic mediums made of, Musique concrète principiums, electroacoustic webs and unrhythmic streaming of ambient scapes.


Rites of Passage — сольный проект Кирилла Степанова, участника дрим-рейв трио Электрическая Собака, а также куратора и со-основателя Радио Морфей. Дебютный полноформатный альбом «Precursor» собран из звуковых медиумов, которые строятся из электроакустических механизмов, композиторских закономерностей конкретной музыки и безритмового течения эмбиента.
