Building upon our recent performance at Muziekgebouw aan ‘t Ij in Amsterdam, we will present an evening of “Gamelantronics”. The programme features Rubber Time, developed in collaboration with Plaid and Dr Rahayu Supanggah, alongside a range of compositions by members of the group: Eternity Bleeps, Charlotte Pugh and Charles Matthews, Augmented Gamelan, and Malcolm Milner.

Members of Southbank Gamelan Players will be playing as a gadhon (chamber) ensemble on Monday 9 May for a lunchtime recital at St Thomas’ Hospital. This is part of a free series of lunchtime performances organised by Breathe Arts Health Research – a brilliant charity and scheme to bring music to hospitals to benefit patients, staff and visitors. The performance will take place in the Central Hall at 1pm.
Southbank Gamelan players continue their collaboration with Plaid at Muziekgebouw Amsterdam on the 22nd May, featuring development of the piece Rubber Time written with Dr Rahayu Supanggah in 2011.
