About the Event
Gamelan DanAnda will conduct an open rehearsal of Balinese Gamelan Gong Kebyar repertoire in the forecourt of La Mama. The rehearsal will demonstrate a range of characteristic Balinese gamelan techniques including interlocking patterns between locked-in musicians, and instruments perfectly tuned to create ‘ombak/waves’ that create its shimmering textures.
--- About The Music Between The Boite’s new program of events "The Music Between" explores how musical traditions in Australia evolve and transform as they come into contact with each other. It will focus on how the original practitioners and their listeners change as they cultivate new Australian musical landscapes.
In this project we are showcasing various aspects of 4 rich traditions Indian, Iranian, Indonesian and Italian. Among the artists involved are Sanacori, Misagh Zamani, Vinod Prasanna and Leo Dale, Ria Soemardjo, members of Gameland DanAnda, Mahindra Bali and Firetail ensembles. The performances will take place in a range of venues in Melbourne, including La Mama Theatre, Abbotsford Convent, and CresFest in regional Victoria.
