Not exactly marbles, not exactly electroacoustic,
but using spheres to produce sound.

A favored technique of an "experimental" composer
of my acquaintance involved bouncing whiffle
balls around on the uppermost strings of a grand
piano where there are no dampers. You get a
random "shimmer" of tones that way.
