Immigrant Song

Immigrant Song is a two-channel video installation. On the first screen a drummer unpacks a typical drummer’s stick bag, 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 over a night sky go off in synchronisation with the drumbeats from the first screen.
