Underneath a water surface or in an underwater world, we can see people floating.

They could be a concert audience; listeners to music by TUK perhaps, for which ‘Rock’ serves as a music video.

But they are lying still, floating, beyond their earthly existence.

Mesmerizing noise accompanies them through a channel of a pixel-infected nature that swallows them up and spits them out in a parallel universe where an artificial landscape of rocks and stones unfolds along a sea.

In the worlds of ‘Rock’, it is impossible to distinguish digital from analogue, virtual from real, natural from artificial.
