    The twenty-ninth release by kultFRONT is the third part in a series of tapes collecting live recordings of like-minded musicians from different kinds of dark musical directions. This time we offer you the split-recording of Russian and French electronic experimentalists. Sal Solaris and Flint Glass met for the first time in March 2016 in St. Petersburg, Russia. Their joint gig took place in the "Ionoteka" club located on the site of former railway warehouses. SS presented their long-awaited new album "Thresholds" and for the first time played live the material that was being born in the studio over such a long time. Quite an uneasy spring for the band and its members. It's important that the transition to new rhythmical bases happened in that very point in time and space. Gwenn Tremorin performed the program especially prepared for this gig. Aside for well-known passages his set contained completely unique tracks. Perfect music for experts in sleepdancing. And if Sal Solaris have already physically released some of their live recordings, for Flint Glass this is the first time his live experiments are published.

    The epigraph to this edition contains the words of the French philosopher, psychiatrist and one of the most influential persons in the history of psychoanalysis – Jacques-Marie-Émile Lacan:

    "Death belongs to the realm of faith. You're right to believe that you will die. It sustains you. If you didn't believe it, could you bear the life you have? If we couldn't totally rely on the certainty that it will end, how could you bear all this?"

    The album is released in an extra limited edition on 75 white cassettes traditionally decorated with pieces of black paper.

    White cassettes in clear cases, b/w artork printed on heavy paper
