A grid of wine glasses -carefully chosen for their pitch- allows table tennis balls to travel through and strike the glasses. The audience is invited to take a ball and leave it gently at the top of the instrument. The ball starts to follow an unpredictable path between the glasses, towards the bottom. A random music piece is created. No matter the path each ball follows, it always ends at the bottom of the instrument. The destiny cannot be avoided.
