Temu Wicara Bali

When: Sat., May 4, 1:30-9:30 p.m. 2013

The islands of Bali and Java may seem remote, but their musical traditions have profoundly influenced Western composers from Claude Debussy and Erik Satie to Philip Glass and Sonic Youth. Indonesian gamelan music is typically performed by ensembles of a dozen or more musicians using mallets to play repeating patterns on tuned percussion instruments. Together, they combine to create the subtly shifting, beautifully transcendent sound you'll be hearing during Temu Wicara Bali: A Celebration of Balinese Performing Arts. Commemorating the 20th anniversary of Colorado College's gamelan music program, the free day-long event will feature 16 Balinese musicians and dancers, five gamelan orchestras and one bowed piano ensemble, along with several guest lecturers. Events run from 1:30 to 9:30 p.m. today at CC's Packard Hall (5 W. Cache la Poudre St.); full schedule and information at tinyurl.com/ccgamelan. — Bill Forman
