The Missing Boy had always been fascinated by glaciers. Since the day he was born in the middle of a volcanic desert, he wandered among huge cacti in blindness because of the sunlight, longing for a winter that would never arrive.
Up rib of rock, down spine of stone...he practiced the art of listening until he could hear the pulse of lava slipping under the ground, the snakes crawling and the bones cracking in the sand. He only opened his eyes at dusk, to stare at the nocturnal sky and walk towards a different land with frozen landscapes, guided by the stars. He walked for ages without stopping until he reached the border of his territory. An abyss of endless depth appeared in front of him. Pam watched him from other side before a vast plain of permafrost. Weary of endless nights and coldness, Pam longed to leave her shelter and feel the heat of the sun.
Although she managed to cross the abyss, her body couldn´t resist high temperatures and she was forced to crawl back to cold. She has lived on the border since then, always staring at the desert. The Missing Boy also tried to break on through to the other side but Pam shouted at him and warned him not to do so, afraid he would freeze before he could reach the other side.
The Missing Boy tried his best to describe the desert landscapes to Pam and came up with an idea. He collected animal skins, bones, pebbles and sticks and turned them into instruments to reproduce and amplify the desert sounds of his memories. In this way, he was able to share the desert with Pam. She was enchanted by notes, and could see warm and dusty images of reptiles in the music. Pam wished to share her glacial coldness with the Missing Boy, and sent roaring night winds and sounds of the whispering snow across the abyss to the Missing Boy.
Their sounds mixed and merged. The Missing Boy loved to imitate the cracking of the ice with his dry bones and Pam enjoyed becoming the Lizardqueen and imaging herself surrounded by desert lizards. This way, musical landscapes gently filled the abyss between their two worlds and created a frontier kingdom known as biastral.”
