Ungklang-Angklung

8-channel fixed media

2019

 

Ungklang-Angklung is a circular 8-channel composition based on samples recording of 3-octave pseudo-chromatic angklung, instruments made of varying numbers of bamboo tubes originated from West Java, Indonesia. While angklung constitutes individual acoustic instruments normally played by several people, in this context all angklung samples are electronically manipulated to explore its acousmatic potential and digitally spatialized to further explore its fundamental nature of being physically spatial instruments.
