Gamelan music (native of Indonesia) is some of the most strangely dreamy and weird music out there. It has a dark beauty to it but it can also be a bit chaotic and unsettling. I have to thank my friend Tyson Farmer for introducing me to it when I was about 18 years old. I've been listening to it ever since. I got my hands on some Gamelan sounds so here is a sketch called Baliwhoo.
This is the second Gamelan piece I've written. Jeremy Gilbertson and I also used Gamelan sounds for a nightmare sequence in the short film The Eternal Youth of Everyone Else.
