Orchestra of Rocks: Not Rock Concert was an installation of sculpture and sound performance by Uta Kögelsberger in collaboration with Atau Tanaka and invited sound artists and DJ’s Dane Law (Adam Parkinson), xname (Eleonora Oreggia), Shelly Parker and Tom Richards. It was exhibited as part of the Whitechapel Art Night Associate Programme and transformed St Olave’s Church on Hart street into an immersive environment of sculptural installation and sound. Based on Kogelsberger’s recordings of individual raindrops, captured with experimental recording techniques, Tanaka, Dane Law, Xname, Shelly Parker and Tom Richards each created improvisations of trancelike, rhythmic and ritualistic soundscapes hovering between abstraction and dance track. The work takes its cue from Kogelsberger’s previous video installation Playing the Cave - a playful evocation of ancient rituals, myth and man's desire, often futile, to gain control over nature.
