Bounce Beat

Part of SoundState

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.
