The gamelan is a percussion orchestra from Indonesia, made up of gongs, drums, metallophones, wooden xylophones, strings (bowed and plucked), bamboo flute, and voice. No two gamelan-makers tune their instruments alike, thus the differences in tuning between ensembles has become an important part of the aesthetics of gamelan music. This piece for guitar, kenong and saron exposes the discrepancies in tunings between the two traditional scales of Javanese gamelan, and also the Western tuning we are familiar with. Written for composer and guitarist Dylan Lardelli, who premiered the work with me at In Brevity, a Caprice Arts Trust concert in Wellington on October 10, 2008.
