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.
