Sanggar Ceraken Of Bali ‘Gamelan Cage’


SKU: 5065001338755 Category:


Gamelan Cage: the parallels between Balinese gamelan and certain works by John Cage – the ones of the'prepared piano' period – seemed obvious to John Noise Manis who, together with Andrew McGraw, embarked on producing this recording in Bali with a purposely put together gamelan orchestra led by I Madé Subandi. Special arrangements of Cage's scores were produced giving them a whole new sonic dimension. This release come with extensive booklet notes describing the preparatory and recording processes of these two fascinatingly adventurous projects.
