Demi Para Dewa Lama Dan Baru (For The Gods Old and New)

Gong Gaada (gamelan and electronics)

Concert link can be found at



Inspired by the traditional music of Indonesia, as well as its contemporary experimental scenes, Gong Gaada is a Los Angeles-based trio exploring a hybrid form of gamelan with electronics. Utilizing reyong (the arrays of metal gongs used in Balinese gamelan), suling (bamboo flute), and modular synthesizer, the group lays out familiar and creative patterns as a matrix for departure. The analog electronics pick up and process the acoustic drama in real-time, the modular output augmenting their sounds with newfound harmonics and psychedelic flitter. Groove intact, noise rips and punctuates in step with the hypnotic rhythms of their struck metal attack.
