(Stretching-Shrinking)

kendang, gender, siter, slenthem, gong, bassoon, & 3 sarons

2017

 

Mulur-Mungkret explores time stretching-and-shrinking based on how gamelan organizes time (irama, in the karawitan term) in a more brute-force way. The piece also use three tuning systems at the same time: the slendro, the pelog, and the diatonic 12-equal temperament.

This performance was conveyed by Stephen May (US, kendhang), Daniel Furuta (US, gender & saron), Lars Christensen (US, siter), Casey Palbicki (US, slenthem), Bill Heinze (US, bassoon), and Jay Afrisando (ID gong & saron) at the Studio Z, St. Paul, MN, US on September 9, 2017.
