About these recordings
I drove on my motorbike down the Hanoman road and I could already hear some traditional music from the distance. After I came closer I looked to the right and saw a group of young men sitting in this open house and playing traditional Balinese music. I came to the right time because they just did the warm-up. A group with at least 25 people so I stopped my motorbike turn around and walked up to them and asked them friendly if I could record this music. I think many people outside of Bali might be very interested in the music and how it sounds like.
How I recorded the Gamelan
Everybody was super friendly and happy that someone showed interest in their traditional music. I placed my recorder and the microphone closer to the musicians with the Bonang, the Kethuk, the Kendank, and one of my favorite instruments, the gong.
The gong is insane. You can listen to the gong in several warm-up tracks (I just called them that way) but, in the main tracks 1 & 2, you can feel the power and the vibration of it.
The warm-up tracks are short versions. The group started playing and stopped immediately after several seconds or minutes, and I kept the best parts of it in the recordings.
After recording for one hour, the group stopped. We had a nice chat about the music and I showed them my website. After editing these sounds, I had almost 35 minutes of usable sounds recorded and created 22 different soundtracks!
