This exhibition celebrates the Conservatorium’s longstanding relationship with gamelan music and dance traditions of Indonesia. Gamelan music is the traditional ensemble music of Bali. It consists mainly of percussion instruments.
The study and performance of Balinese gamelan music has been an active component of Conservatorium of Music life since 1999. This exhibition highlights current research by Niall Edwards-FitzSimons on Acehnese dance, the repatriation of ethnographic recordings from the early twentieth century and the influence of gamelan on composition students at the Conservatorium.
