Album Notes
There is no old or new in gamelan gendér wayang, only "then" or "now." ~ Gusti Komin

Many people distinguish between traditional and contemporary Balinese music, but the only distinction that master artist Gusti Komin finds meaningful in gendér is whether a piece was created "then" or "now." His new experimental pieces bring the past to the present by melding standard gamelan patterns with wildly virtuosic techniques and melodies. When asked about these new works, Gusti Komin said, "Roots are important to me; the music of my father and grandfather are always present in my music. I learned gendér from my father, grew up playing with my brother, and recorded six of these pieces in the sanctuary of a Balinese rice paddy, mainly at night."

Gendér wayang are among the most ancient musical instruments from Bali, used in shadow puppet plays, temple ceremonies, and sacred performances. The music incorporates delicate interlocking melodies and counterpoint, and is considered by many Balinese to be the highest form of gamelan music. Usually played by two or four players, this CD features Gusti Komin playing all parts by himself or joined by his brother.
