Programme Note:
Inspired after a year of studying Balinese gamelan, this work does not so much imitate the sounds of Balinese music as interpret them through the lens of Western understanding. Interlocking rhythmic melodies, intricate figurations, and unexpected changes of mood, are expressed by a soloist coming to terms with the sound of the 25- member gamelan semara dana. This piece is dedicated to the innovative spirit and energetic creativity of my guru Dewa Ketut Alit.

Premiere Information:
July 21, 2002, Ryerson United Church, Vancouver; Colin MacDonald.
