Gamelan Instruments

GAMELAN CULTURE

Gamelan Semaradana, LSO London

Gamelan is an ensemble of instruments originating from Indonesia. The majority of Gamelan instruments are percussive, and most of these are bronze. They include xylophone-like metallophones of different sizes and pitch, tuned gong chimes, very large pitched gongs, and an assortment of drums and percussion. There are many types of Gamelan ensembles, but the two dominant types are Javanese and Balinese. Balinese Gamelan has a characteristic 'shimmering' sound which is due to the detuning of paired instruments playing the same musical part.

Although Gamelan music has been around for centuries (there is evidence of instruments existing before 800 AD), it is very much a living music in Indonesia, and is growing in popularity in the west. Styles keep evolving and new Gamelan music is being written all the time. Balinese "Gong Kebyar", a particularly flamboyant style, has dominated much of the century and is probably Bali's most famous export.

Gamelan music is very much about the collective - it has been described as 'a negotiation between musicians'. Many of the musicians play interlocking parts, in which alternate notes are shared between two instruments. This technique enables the ensemble to play incredibly fast passages.

Another resonant and delightful package from Soniccouture. Much fuller than the usual Gamelan inclusions in World packages. A beautifully and thoughtfully recorded package.

This is a high quality collection - beautifully recorded, loads of articulations. I'm just scratching the surface and not sure I@ll ever be trying to sound like a gamelan orchestra - but for meditative ambient music, these sounds are just perfect. I'll be back for other Soniccouture Asian percussions.
