Artist: GAMELAN SON OF LION
Title: Sonogram
Format: Double CD
Label: Innova
Country: USA
Price: $22.00
"Gamelan Son of Lion is a New York City-based composers collective and repertory ensemble exploring and expanding the variety of musical styles that may be performed using Javanese and Balinese percussion orchestra. The ensemble has performed around the greater New York area and on tours abroad since 1976. This newest collection of compositions for gamelan features premiers from recent concert seasons as well as a scattering of old favorites from the past. Works by ten composer-performers of the ensemble are represented: Barbara Benary, David Demnitz, Miguel Frasconi, Daniel Goode, Lisa Karrer, Jody Kruskal, Laura Liben, Denman Maroney, John Morton and David Simons. The Indonesian Gamelan is based on a core group of metallophones (gongs and keyboards) in the traditional Javanese/Balinese tunings slendro and pelog, supplemented by gongs and drums. To the beautiful sound of the metallophones many other sounds can be added, according to the composer¹s inspiration. On this CD, in addition to the core gamelan sound, are electronically-processed music boxes in Mortons "She (Really) Had To Go" and glass instruments in Frasconis "Telling Time," Scottish fiddle and Gaelic song in Benarys "Jigalullaby," and a hypnotic kaleidoscope of world music strings, winds and vocal styles in Karrers "Kacapi." - Innova.

Title: Complete Gamelan in the New World
Format: Double CD
Label: Locust
Country: USA
Price: $17.50
"This is the first proper re-release of two legendary recordings by the innovative Gamelan Son of Lion. This New York performance group has counted as its founding members Fluxus pioneer Phillip Corner, electronics composer Daniel Goode (Tzadik), and core member Barbara Benary. Equally inspired by the resonant decaying sounds of New York school composers like Morton Feldman, the stunning pacific gamelan music of its namesake & the wild antics of Fluxus, their sound is trancelike and beautifully inspiring collection. Brought back into print for the first time in over 20 years, this fully remastered features new liner notes by Author Marcus Boon." - Locust.
