direction and music / music video

In the 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.
