DATES FOR 2010
Southbank Gamelan Players and Plaid tour.
Electro-alchemists Plaid blend their trademark sound with the mesmerising textures and rhythms of a Javanese gamelan orchestra. Gamelan has influenced so much western electronic, from Aphex Twin to Kode9, but both genres have never before shared the same stage, until now.
Commissioned by Southbank Centre as part of Ether 2009, Electronic Music Duo Plaid
worked with Artist in Residence Rahayu Supanggah and Ensemble in Residence Southbank Gamelan Players to create an exciting collaboration of gamelan and electronic music which was premiered in April 2009 at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London.
SbGP and Plaid have since been developing this piece and embark on a tour starting in June 2010.
