Two Pieces : for three gamelan players / Ross James Carey

Publisher's number: 15195
Genre: Orchestra
Subgenre: Gamelan
Instruments: gamelan
Duration: 6'00"
Year of composition: 1999
Status: fully digitized (real-time delivery)

In these pieces for a chamber grouping of just three gamelan instruments, I used as the basis for composition a combined scale made up of notes from the pelog and slendro modes. The first piece combines a repeated ostinato and melody in a laid-back ‘bluesy’ kind of way. The second piece is a wholly serial composition consisting of a repeated cycle of notes; the three performers play each note on their instrument once only (making a complete cycle) before again the notes are played in the same order, although the ensemble (the interlocking pattern) can be varied in the subsequent repetition.

Saron barung in slendro, saron barung in pelog, demung in slendro.
