In the spring of 2017 Ivan Kirichenko, musician of Lyudi-na-ldu (People on Ice) project, invited us to participate in the drone compilation on "The Day of Life Forgotten" label. From this idea, the album "Fire in Brake" was born. April 11, we came up with a plan for improvisation and the next day recorded a half-hour track. The material turned out to be versatile and in some pieces far from the set task. It was decided to release the middle part on the compilation and to publish the full version as a new album of Kshettra.
A major role in creative process were played by noise-machines of the Moscow media artist :: vtol ::. Synthesizers Garmonbozia and Oxoma laid the foundation of the second and third compositions. Drums and samples were added later. Ivan Kirichenko also recorded additional textures in his home studio. In some ways, this technology echoes the ideas of "Walk under the Moon" from the album "Five Mothers". "Fist Turns to Palm" turned out with a more traditional rhythm section and a well thought out structure. A couple of weeks after the first session, we invited Ramille Mulikov to record brass instruments there.
