KIRILL BELOUSOV - Sound Engineer

Kirill Belousov is a self-taught musician. Born in 1981 in Moscow, Russia he moved to Toronto, Canada in 2001. He started plucking the strings of his father’s guitar and keys of his mother’s piano at the age of 7. It gave him a feel for music on a very deep level. In 1994, he had a classmate who was running a school radio station. That was the first time he pushed his first control button. From this moment on, he got further into electronic music and understanding the ways of sound. He never had his own computer growing up, but that wasn’t a barrier. Starting from the easiest computer programs, such as Dance EJ he started creating his first musical ideas. He started learning sound science by himself about 7 years ago. Then in 2004, Kirill went to the Toronto Film School and took the sound engineering course. Since the first semester he started taking part in short films and other school projects, through which he gained priceless experience. Since graduating in 2005, he has been working as a self employed freelance sound engineer. Kirill is the Location Sound engineer, as well as the Post-Production Sound Engineer in the film “Strafe”.
