Notes

All tracks are live improvisations with pre-programmed sequenced patterns.
"The sounds gathered on this cassette are excercises in live polyrhytmic structures and minimal melodic music. They are in no way trying to represent or to imitate traditional gamelan music from Java or Bali. You could look at it as a mere impressionistic view through obvious inspiration. No special (micro)tunings were used on these pieces (except on the track 'Gamla Krobo'). All parts were preprogrammed on a number of polyphonic sequencer tracks and afterwards played and modulated in a live manner during the recording process. By seperately modulating each tracks' timing and thus manipulating the overall rhythmic structure of the piece, an effect, closely resembling an ensemble of live performers was archieved. Thanks for listening" David E.
