Echoes of Gamelan explores the influence of gamelan music on western composers, as well as how our music perception changes depending on the context. Colin McPhee’s transcriptions of Balinese ceremonial music are interwoven with pieces by Godowsky, Debussy, Holst, Crumb, and Baumbusch. The program closes with a transcription of a piece by Balinese composer Ni Nyoman Srayamurtikanti, originally written for Balinese shadow-puppet theater instruments.
