Anthem Anthem Revolution


In Anthem Anthem Revolution, participants battle a table tennis robot to hear a new national song as written by children, an anthem that reflects their hopes and dreams for the country. Inspired by rhythm games like Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero, each time a ball is returned, we hear a child’s voice accompanied by a new musical element. As the experience progresses, this builds into a musical track for a new generation.
