Wayang Music Collection.
A volume containing Dennis Murphy's compositions for gamelan, as well as Javanese pieces he learned while at Wesleyan. This collection was a resource for the many wayang performances presented by Murphy and the Plainfield Village Gamelan, for which Murphy wrote the scripts, made the puppets, and built most of the gamelan instruments.
