Javanese Gamelan Sound Library
John Noise Manis and John PalmerListen & Purchase CD or downloads
A special Gamelan sound library CD aimed primarily at musicians wishing to include traditional Gamelan instruments in their work. This collection of the percussive sounds of the Gamelan of Central Java in the ‘slendro’ and ‘pelog’ scales of the Montebello Gamelan, also includes additional sounds of Javanese-built gamelan instruments (gender, saron, bonang) in the 12-tone chromatic scale. Altogether the collection includes 508 sounds. In order to retain the original qualities of the sounds, the instruments have been recorded without additional processing, and the natural duration of sounds has not been changed. The CD booklet provides detailed information on the instruments, photos, sound characteristics, scales, tuning and a 94 track list. This is a unique and invaluable tool for composers, libraries, studios.
