'an elegy for the arctic'

Ludovico Einaudi ... performed one of his own compositions on a floating platform in the middle of the Ocean, against the backdrop of the Wahlenbergbreen glacier (in Svalbard, Norway).
Greenpeace organised the performance to call attention to the fragility of the Arctic, in hopes of influencing OSPAR, an international consortium tasked with protecting the Northeast Atlantic ocean.

Discovered thanks to Vox, via evencleveland, where David Roberts' called it 'an elegy for everything.'

'anything can happen'

Anything can happen, the tallest towers 
Be overturned, those in high places daunted,
Those overlooked regarded.

Seamus Heaney, from 'Anything Can Happen.'
