Play Indonesian music for your breadth study! The Gamelan Ensemble rehearses on the magnificent bronze slendro-pelog gamelan from central Java, Indonesia in the Faculty of Music. Students learn to play all the instruments of the gamelan – gongs, drums and metal xylophones and tuned pots. Pieces learned include traditional and newly composed works for gamelan.
No music reading skills are required. Students work to an end-of year performance including a short excerpt from a shadow puppet play.
