Open Session: Aris Daryono, Gamelan
Sunday 5 Nov 2017 5pm
Part of Autumn Concerts
In this residency, Indonesian born composer Aris Daryono reflects on his musical background. He uses gamelan and western instruments to express his ideas, to explore his childhood memories and to create the ambience of Indonesia. There is a strong relationship between his compositions and the gamelan music he grew up with. He creates his own musical language by exploring the use of stillness and trance-like elements as well as interpreting ideas and interactions.
