Based on the idea of the universal pattern of the "rites of passage", which were ethnologically investigated by van Gennep in 1909. These rites occur when a person changes a status or basic role, such as from child to adult, or from neophyte to adept. The transition process goes from an initial status, where the apprentice is separated from the group/clan/society, via a temporary, marginal or "liminal" intermediate status, through which the person must pass in order to reach the new role or status of aggregation. All in all the passage process is described as a crisis situation.

The tracklist is an imaginary sonic ranging of van Gennep's journey to interior space.

Track 1 - 3 *rites de separation
Track 4 - 8 *rites de marges
Tracks 9 & 10 *rites d'aggrégation
