Hear ping-pong in a whole new way at a musical performance incorporating the percussive sounds of a live game.
Using the game as an instrument, composers Nicola Chang, Angelus Marr, Alex Ho, Raymond Yiu and An-Ting Chang have incorporated the sounds of ping-pong into new works for piano, violin and cello, each piece based on a different racket technique.
Commissioned and presented by Chinese Arts Now as part of CAN Festival 2019.
Come along earlier in the afternoon and investigate the rhythmic possibilities of the percussive sound of ping-pong for yourself in Bounce Beat: Ping-Pong & Music Workshop at 12 noon in Queen Elizabeth Hall Foyer. Find out more
