Culture is not a museum. It is ever changing.
The Observatory indulge a deep seated fascination with Southeast Asian music in this new work, featuring gamelan-inspired bronze instruments custom built on a unique 6-tone scale.
A pair of jegogan and pemade, one cengceng, and a reyong set with acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, synths, drums and vocals. Ideas and musical influences collide and meld into a broad sonic expanse. A thick bewitching stew of interlocking Balinese-African rhythms, prog rock, early electronic music, and trance, marked by the use of repetitive figures and tuning variations to create cyclical vibrations known as ‘beats’. The music remains dark and hypnotic.
This concert celebrates the album release of Continuum, performed in full for the first time by an ensemble of 10 musicians.
