The big volcanic eruptions in Iceland in winter/spring 2010 that more or less paralyzed the western world concerning aviation, brought me and my dear colleague and friend Karin Klingenstierna to a discussion about the human being as a self-proclaimed ruler of the world. Karin wrote a most inspiring text concerning the matter, and this time we have made a dark piece together (opposite to the temper of ”Missa Mariposa”, which was our first joint opus, premiered April 2010)
