103F / 39C at noon …

… so clearly, it’s time for a volcano break.

mummo74 pointed my to Jón Leifs’ Hekla, written for the Icelandic volcano of the same name.

I’m impressed by the instrumentation, which along with more traditional instruments includes:

– siren
– two anvils
– small rocks
– large rocks
– large wooden hammer
– gun shot
– cannon
– deep rolling iron chains
