Rock Concert II (2018)

Uta Kögelsberger in collaboration with Atau Tanaka, with contributions by Will Edmondes, Mariam Rezaei and the Noise Choir

Loosely based on the notion of a ritualistic “stop the rain dance” Rock Concert II is a visceral response to the increase of rainfall in the Lake District due to climate change. Recordings of individual raindrops captured by Uta Kögelsberger during heavy rainfall in the mouth of a disused mine, with experimental recording techniques are handed over to sound artists including Atau Tanaka, Will Edmondes, The Noise Choir and Mariam Rezaei.

An 8 channel sound installation of free standing, simulated “rock-speakers” spread live mixes creating trancelike, rhythmic and ritualistic soundscapes hovering between abstraction and dance track. The work takes its cue from the previous video installation ‘Playing the Cave’.
