He received a classical higher education as a clarinetist, and after graduating from the Rodchenko school he focused on experimental musical projects, combining the clarinet with electronics.
For the Electro staircase, Andrei Guryanov and Grisha Mumrikov have prepared a special balance of checks, counterbalances and interactions.
“We peer into the eyes of infinity... And the fish of temptation swim by. They whisper to you about all the pleasures of this world. They follow you. But you swim on. Towards the dawn. Do not look into their eyes. Their shiny scales beckon to you, reflecting our dreams. But we sail on further. Because reflection is not our path... Our oars rustle quietly. Raking the waters of the river." (Director Kostas Marsan, for whose film Guryanov and Mumrikov wrote the music).
