21/5/02 for pelog gamelan

This may be the most unpopular piece I have ever written! In June of 2002, Gamelan Naga Mas, dalang Joko Susilo and Matthew Isaac Cohen worked together to create the wayang sandosa ‘Cuchulain’ at Gilmorehill G12. Lured in by the very… demotic approach Joko and Matthew were taking, I came up with this idea for a really rather stunningly tastless pelog blues.


As above. I can’t seem to find the bonang part at the moment – not that we’d ever want to play this again. Probably.
