Gamelan Arsenal Style

Recently tutors from the Southbank Gamelan Players spent time with members of the Arsenal football squad as part of the team’s preparations for the upcoming Asia tour. Tutors John Pawson and Manuel Jimenez shared information on collection of instruments and gave a background to their historical and cultural significance in Javanese culture.

The results have been made into a small promotional clip for the team. If you listen carefully there is in fact a relationship between the notes used in the gamelan and the football chant which fades in at the end. Enjoy.
