'Back Home' Concerts by Gamelan Taniwha Jaya and Gamelan Padhang Moncar
54 MONTHS AGO
We're back! Thank you so much to all of you for helping fund our tour to Indonesia. We had a fantastic time sharing our music and seeing lots of amazing sights and sounds over there.
We'd love to see you at our 'Back Home' Concerts where we'll be playing the new works we took over there. Both will be in the Adam Concert Room, NZ School of Music, Kelburn Campus.
Friday 9 August, 12:10pm-1pm, Gamelan Taniwha Jaya
Our Balinese gamelan will perform six new compositions by Briar Prastiti, Jason Erskine, Anton Killin, Jack Hooker, Megan Collins, and Gareth Farr. We were thrilled to be positively reviewed in the Jakarta Post Bali Daily after our concert in Bali: "...From Shadows composed by Anton Killin, set the tone perfectly; a soft melodic piece that gently eased the audience into the concert. It featured Tristan Carter playing the violin that provided a significant and at times eerie contrast."
Sunday 11 August, 6pm, Gamelan Padhang Moncar, followed by refreshments
Our Javanese gamelan will perform new works by Annika Naschitzki, Anton Killin, Briar Prastiti, Tristan Carter, Jason Erskine, and Jack Hooker. Our performance at the Yogyakarta Gamelan Festival was one of only two international acts at the festival this year and was well received, against an amazing backdrop of video images projected onto Taman Sari (the old water palace in Yogya).
After this concert, we invite you to join us for refreshments and to chat about our experiences on tour.
We look forward to seeing you at one or both of these events. We couldn't have done it without you!
