“Mulur-Mungkret” explores time stretching-and-shrinking based on how gamelan organizes time (irama, in the karawitan term) in somehow a more brute-force way. The piece also use three tuning systems at the same time: slendro, pelog, and the diatonic 12-equal temperament.
Performed at Studio Z, St. Paul, MN, US on 9 September, 2017.
Supported in part by the American Composers Forum through the Minnesota Emerging Composer Award 2016 funded by the Jerome Foundation.
