Dublin, County Dublin
Ping Pong are Paul O'Connell & Aine Corcoran. The outfit was formed six years ago in former member, Dave Garvan's bedroom. Musical experiments were conducted over a period of twelve months, and then a vocal was sought. Aine was introduced through the "friend of a friend" network. The combination worked well, aided and abetted through a mutual love of sounds, chocolate and exotic biscuits. Paul's background primarily lies in DJ'ing techno and house music around the city and on pirate radio, David's background lies towards the classical side, and the mix of bubbly rhythms and melodic chords worked very well. Aine has attended the Bello Canto School of Music for a time and her soft spoken vocal complimented the sounds being made. The trio have played at various venue's around the city and played last years Electric Picnic in the Body & Soul arena. David has since departed to concentrate on other projects. A recent stint in the studio has produced a half dozen tracks, some of the results can be listened to here.
