Sampling the unique, magical sound of a Balinese Gamelan is no small undertaking. The 25 instruments that make up The London Symphony Orchestra’s Semara Dana Gamelan Ensemble had to be recorded in great detail, as if each were to be a sample library in its own right. A Gamelan is an ensemble of instruments originating in Indonesia. The majority of Gamelan instruments are percussive, and they include xylophone-like metallophones of different sizes and pitches, tuned gong chimes, very large pitched gongs and an assortment of drums and percussion. The two dominant types of Gamelan ensembles are Javanese and Balinese. Balinese Gamelan has a characteristic “shimmering” sound due to the detuning of paired instruments playing the same musical part.
