11 points - Federico Llach Ping pong players play one set to 11 points. Musicians play the written music by taking the sounds of the game as their beat. The score of the game is projected in the background. For further illustration, please look at the video of the first performance at www.federicollach.com.

Expression-wise, it is more important - or at least equally important - for the musicians to follow the energy of the game than the written dynamics. Hence, if the game gains in intensity, performers should react accordingly. Written dynamics should be taken as the base dynamics from where to react. When the game reaches a match point, players will move forward to their last page - if needed -, marked as match point, and will loop the four points found there. This can be seen very clearly in the parts - much more than in the score - which are properly labeled and prepared with a tab that helps turning the page in that critical moment. Directions for ping pong players: Players should try to hold the rally until they make a given amount of hits, and only then start to risk progressively. This goal of hits decreases as the piece progresses as follows:

Directions for musicians:

1st point: 30 hits, 2nd point: 29 hits, 3rd point: 28 hits, ...

Musicians play by taking the sounds of the ball hitting both the paddles and the table as their beat; each one of these is equivalent to an eighth note. The only exception to this is the serve, where the first hit of the paddle is not taken as a beat. This sound is to be felt by the musicians as a pick-up. The downbeat of each point is the sound of the ball hitting the table for the first time, on the server's side.

â&#x20AC;Ś and so on until they arrive to 15 hits, which will be always the minimum goal from then on until the piece ends.

Brackets above the music mean looping. Whenever the musicians reach that part of the music they should repeat it indefinitely until the point ends. Loops are most of the times different in length for each of the musicians within the same point.

Furthermore, their starting speed of play for each point should increase progressively throughout the piece, starting very gentle in the first point and arriving to the fastest speed possible - while still being sufficiently comfortable to hold the ball in play - towards the last point. When the game arrives to a "match point", one of the players should announce it out loud to the audience and musicians. Players should continue to play with the regular ping pong rules until the game is finished, without worrying to announce any further score even if the game goes into deuce.

11 points - Installation version

Abstract: Installation version of my concert piece "11 points". While the participants play a ping-pong match to 11 points, the bounces of the ball both on the paddles and the table will trigger previously composed and recorded music, showcasing, as a result, the beauty of a music whose basic tempo is uneven and unpredictable.

Background: I hadn't seen the following before doing my piece, but I saw them later and it draws a similarity to my piece in the use of ping pong balls: Alvin Lucier's "!"#$%& '()& *")+& ,-.+#/& 0-##& 1)"2#/& -34& 5%("#6$%&*+34"7"2#8& 9.$2+(:%(2;<=>>?@@>& -76A("BA&+-#$7C&#+-)%A-D7+&$3&E36+)3+6F:& 53C& #+G"+3%+4& 2"#$%& %-3& D+& 6A("BA6& ('& -3& -36+%+4+36/& #"%A& -#& H$-3(& )(77#& ')(2& 6A+& IEI& %+36")C/& J-3%-))(KL#& H7-C+)& H$-3(&H$+%+#/&+6%:& The concert version is unique in having performers following an action that is steady but uneven. The installaton version is unique in that the elements of a sport trigger a sequencer or music box, acting as a MIDI controller. Also, the rules of the sport areâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;both in concert and installation versionâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the element that structure the form of the piece


Goals In previous works, I had been exploring different ways of feeling the rhythm, mainly by writing stemless notes and having the musicians play by following their spatial location in the score. This piece takes this attitude one level further by having the basic pulse altered, which is much more dramatic. In its concert version the piece is performed by 2 ping pong players and 5 musicians. By asking the musicians to do an impossible task - to follow the unpredictable bounces of a ping pong ball - the concert version stages human imperfection. The installation version leaves that layer of meaning out by having the sensors and software do the job in a much perfectionist fashion. However, it has the advantage of allowing the performance of subtle and "complex-contemporary" music to non-musicians: "Play a contemporary music piece: now you can!". Implementation: Hardware materials (diagram at the end): Arduino, Xbee with trace antenna X3, Breakout board for Xbee X2, Xbee explorer dongle, piezos X3, buttons X5, batteries X2, contact mic, Jumper cables, connectors for batteries, Projector, Computer, Sound card, Speakers, Ping-pong paddles, table, etc. Software: Arduino, Processing, RWMidi library for Processing, ProTools, Battery sampler plugin, Minim Library, Audacity.


Processing uses the input of the paddles and table to send MIDI notes to the sampler in ProTools, loaded with prerecorded sounds. The intensity of the strokes is routed to MIDI velocity values. Paddles are equiped with a piezo and Xbees that transmit through a receiver Xbee. For the table, a contact mic is used: Minim reads the input of the contact mike and sends a MIDI note each time the intensity rises above a given threshold. The music score - taken from the original concert piece - is written in Processing in MIDI values. Music is written for each of the points in the piece. Ping pong players use two buttons (up and down) attached to the table to keep the score. This tells Processing which music to trigger and the score to project. Also, one reset button at the side of the table restarts the game.
