About

Jangeran seeks to bridge the musical gap between East and West: a Balinese melody is appropriated by the Western orchestra and is recast in a range of Western contexts. At various points a gamelan ensemble, embedded in the Western orchestra, emerges and reasserts ownership of the musical source materials while at other times the two bodies combine to explore new and strange syntheses of culture, movement and soundworlds.

Jangeran was commissioned and premiered by the Nusantara Symphony Orchestra in Jakarta in May 2005, conductor Edward Van Ness, with further performances in Osaka and Tokyo, Yogyakarta and Jakarta.
