Loosely based on the notion of a ritualistic “stop the rain dance” Rock Concert II is a response to the incessant rainfall in the Lake District, how it defines every interpretation and experience of this landscape, as well as how it is a reflection of the changes to weather conditions due to climate change. Recordings of individual raindrops captured 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.
Rock Concert II at The Boiler House, 2018
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’.
