In the magical volcanic landscapes of Lanzarote, Jana Irmert found images for the ideas, moods and feelings that fueled the work on the pieces of her album What Happens At Night:
„For me this release is a window through which I could express my thoughts and feelings about our planet in turmoil. Starting out from a point of hopelessness, my fascination grew travelling into Deep Time, learning about geologic ages. After all, what will be left of us will only be a delicate layer in rock.“
"Stratum", named after the word used in geology for a single layer of sediment, attempts to dissolve time and spaces, merging the abstract and the concrete.
The volcanic landscapes, which are very recent from a geological perspective, thereby become a place where human existence only plays a marginal role.
