Programme Note:
This piece was inspired by the fictional theory of the Galactic Alignment on December 21, 2012, which by some was considered to be the day of the end of the world and the switch into another dimension. According to this story, all planets of the solar system would align into one axis and that would signal the beginning to a new era. A new planet that was invisible before called Nibiru would emerge bringing new life.Certainly these ideas are fictional science, but it was fun imagining them and composing a sound track for the planet Nibiru.
