1. PRELUDE TO THE EXTINCTION

 

 

 

 

In the Symphony For The New Migration ‘‘Pathogenesis’’, the story takes place in Iceland. Touristic country filled with hotels and tour guiding around the Island, so you could buy memorable experiences for some sum of money. 

Numerous people come and go everyday, creating an image of Iceland being a mix of cultures, 

a mix of different bodies.

2. ALLEGRO I.SURVIVAL

Tourists visit famous swimming pools, important culture facilities and beautiful lands. Yet, one of the most frequently attended places are nothing else than supermarkets

change their usual habits and 

everyday rhythm, to stand the pace of a human. 

Many creatures are becoming nocturnal, being active during the night to avoid the most dangerous predator. 

 

 

 

Seeking shelter in the city, build up for human standards, new ecosystems are being created. The most frequently visited facility, the supermarket, is not the best environment to grow for any given specie. 

However, nesting in the newly inhabited territory, the birds from different parts of Iceland migrated in search for livable conditions, making their homes in the city of a homo sapiens.
