Pretty City Ping Pong




Shown at PS2 for Belfast Culture Night 2012 and the East Belfast Arts Festival 2013 

This table tennis table had been prepared in the Cageian sense by applying contact microphones underneath the surface. These fed a network of resonators and interpolating delay lines which sonified each ball bounce and controlled a battery of lights that sparked up with every strike. The total effect was as if your ping pong game had been used as a musical score for a piece by the bastard love child of Autechre and Basic Channel.

I’m currently working on a more developed version, featuring more LEDS under a frosted playing surface.
