A sound system was abandoned on top of an uninhabited islet powered by a gasoline generator and the national anthem rang fading away at sea and lasting the conquest of those lands only what the available energy lasted, contracting the epic idea of eternity to the duration of the resources.
Some issues are tackled like the specific characteristics, geographical, political and symbolic of the islands -start from scratch, utopia ... – certain historical anomalies where the military and political are full of absurdity and comedy, as the Perejil island conflict.
During the exhibition opening, 65 musicians had parade through the streets of León and performed an anthem wich is familiar in its musical idiom and yet is completely unidentifiable.
