Sekar Suling (2009)
The composer writes:

I wrote this composition for Toronto's Evergreen Club Contemporary Gamelan.
It's a showpiece for the suling (an Indonesian bamboo flute) with Sundanese
gamelan. For this piece, I have added a sixth sorog note to the five-note
pelog scale, and occasionally make brief use of a seventh note in the suling
part only.

While there are some references to Sundanese musical style, in its formal
structure this is a thoroughly Western composition. As well, the placement of
the suling “front and centre” as a soloist, is a marked divergence from
the instrument’s ornamental role in traditional Sundanese music.
