Talking Gong, written by Susie Ibarra for Alex Peh and Claire Chase, explores traditional Philippine Kulintang cipher scores, reimagined for piano, flute, and mixed percussion. Premiered at the Look and Listen Festival and SUNY New Paltz in 2018, this performance celebrates the release of their new single, recorded at Dreamland studio in Woodstock NY. Burmese percussionist Kyaw Kyaw Naing, teams up with pianist Alex Peh to perform new improvisations and compositions for piano and pat waing, a traditional combination that developed when the Italian ambassador gifted King Mindon of Burma a piano in the mid-19th century.
