After studying music, dance, and shadow play in Solo, a mecca for gamelan art, Saptana, a gamelan player, has participated in numerous works as a visiting teacher here in Japan since 1979. This work is a fusion of gamelan and Japanese music, as can be seen in the title "Javanese Gamelan Music" released from ALM in 1984, and is an ambitious work with student performers. The album features five gamelan ensembles that seem to combine elements of delicate sound production and contemporary music. Among them, track of A1/A3/B1 are with a meditative or new age feel. Don't miss the insert with details/illustration of the instruments used in the gamelan ensemble.
