Le Gamelan Javanais (Javanese Gamelan) - Claude Dietrich - Book + CD
This work, dedicated to the magical, mysterious world of Indonesian percussion ensembles, gives the reader an insight of a much-unknown universe, at least to the western public.
Gamelan being the symbol of Indonesian community culture, the work is divided into four chapters that lead us into the richness of Javanese musical practice :
- The Gamelan's instrumental formation
- The Code system used for conducting the musicians
- Casting of roles and functions inside the Gamelan
- Possible adaptation of Indonesian music to western instrumental sets (for instance school ensembles)
A beautiful, 64-pages work, with colour photos and CD
