Immigrant Song

2009 / two channel video / 1.35 min

On one screem, Berlin-based drummer Hannes Lingens unpacks a typical drummer's stickbag, filled with firework rockets, and plays a variation of John Bonham's drum groove from Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” using firework rockets as drumsticks.
On the other screen fireworks on a night sky go off in synchronization with the drumbeats from the first screen.
