the music of sound posts more about a recent trip to Bali. Included are good stories, great photos, and excellent Zoom H2 recordings of natural sound, Balinese Gamelan, cool street music etc.
Once saw the MIT based Gamelan Galak Tika perform some years ago at Roger Williams University. Great show with a hands on session afterward for interested audience members.
The matched but subtly detuned pairs of instruments give the music its shimmer.
