Indonesion Gong Ensemble

Applied Studies 750

Usual Description

In this course you will learn to play gong ensembles from Indonesia, including the classical practice of Central Javanese gamelan (a percussion-based ensemble featuring gongs and keyed instruments); and village-style talempong from West Sumatra that features interlocking drums and kettle gongs. By the end of the clas students will have gained a basic understanding of how the music is constructted, along with cultural matters specific to its performance. Throughtout th semester students will be encouraged to take turns on all the different instruments but workd towards ensemble rather than individual expression for a final performance. Students will elect to participate either in gamelan or talempong or, in rare cases, in both.
