The Percussion Ball began in an effort to make a more performative sculpture for a percussionist to play. I initially conceived it as an unpredictable and chaotic object that would roll around as it was being played. I wanted musicians to be more physical in their interaction with the object. The tubes coiled inside resonated when the outside face is slapped. Each sound hole, or hexagon face, outlets at its’ opposite side, allowing for variations in pitch.
