Rite of Passage is a continuation of and opposition to the last album made by Mirt, Heading South. Like its predecessor, it is a kind of modern soundtrack for some non-existent trash movie. The title is taken from an episode of Miami Vice. Some voices are taken from old zombie movies. It sounds like a joke, but right now there is a significant change going on in Mirt's music and it really is a kind of rite of passage for him. There aren't that many rich, multilayered textures, there is less of a chaotic background, but more hypnotic, repetitive sequences. His music has become more minimalistic and dark, and rhythms once hidden are now distinguishable. However, you can still feel the strange, cinematic atmosphere of Mirt's previous recordings. Each track was made in just one take using modular synth, without any further mixing or overdubbing. Tomek Mirt: musician, graphic artist and designer. Works solo and in collaborations. He is part of XAOC Devices, a small boutique company developing modular synths. Mirt has released nine solo albums (for MonotypeRec, Nefryt, Foxglove/Digitalis, Backwards and Cat|Sun).
