Bali 1928: Gamelan Gong Kebyar

Label: World Arbiter

Format: CD

Genre: Folk

Out of stock

Subtitled: Belaluan, Pangkung, Busungbiu. World Arbiter presents historic gamelan recordings made in 1928 as part of a collection of the first and only commercially-released recordings of music made in Bali prior to World War II, the first ever to document pre-War genres. The compositions heard on volume 1 are untraditional, avant-garde experiments that later evolved into familiar forms, new music captured close to the time of its inception. After five years of research and field work, Edward Herbst offers analytical notes and a glossary (PDF files) along with 1930s silent films shot in Bali by Rolf de Maré (MPEG-4). World Arbiter's multi-media format disc requires a computer to read PDF files and to view the films. The music is playable on standard audio equipment. Includes a 16-page booklet with notes and historic photos.
