State University's Journalism program in 1984 and, having taken a brief break for mandatory
military service, remained at the Journalism department (specializing in TV
journalism) until 1991. The eventful history of post-Soviet Russia and its
promptly growing mass media and entertainment markets made a great impact
on Cyril's career: in 1990-1998, he used to work as a TV reporter, a music
festival producer, a security guard, a news agency editor, a rock group
musician, a radio station host, a newspaper columnist, a radio station
program director, and again as a TV reporter. In 1998 he joined
leading Web conglomerate dedicated to jazz music, as a managing editor.
Besides writing a good deal of articles for the weekly jazz online
magazine inside Jazz.Ru,
Cyril took on to write extensively for numerous Russian printed publications - daily
newspapers (Izvestia), weekly general interest and entertainment magazines
(The Weekly, Afisha, TimeOut Moscow) and monthly
music magazines (Play, Stereo&Video, Audio&Video Review, Salon AV),
and joined Chicago-based DownBeat, the oldest existing jazz
magazine in the world, as their contributor in Russia since 2000.
