COLLABORATIONS

Many of the contributions to the AGI Library that have been frequently used and much appreciated by the international gamelan community. I hope that with Collaborations, a community effort might increase the knowledge of and respect for these possibilities.

SUKAMSO: GENDHING BONDHET

 

Gendhing Bondhet examined from a variety of perspectives. Includes extensive notation. John Gilbert translated a large part of this, I hope that will be available to post soon. In Indonesian.

DARSONO: Macapat Gaya Pak Netra

 

Description and notation for macapat by Pak Netra, a bling singer from the Kraton Surakarta.The part that needs to be translated is the introduction covering the the background and history of the project. There is extensive notation comparing the style of Pak Netra, and the regular style of the present day. The notation in these files has been changed to KepatihanPro from Kepatihan, but spacing, needs to be corrected; changing the under-brackents is also a possibility. Introduction (first chapter only) in Indonesian; macapat text with notation in Javanese

Sections of the manuscript. The introduction is text, the others are notation.

Additional work on these files will require a computer with KepatihanPro on it. This font is available for download in the AGI library.

The project includes three CDs: current practice by Eni Wahyningsih, S.Sen (Alumnus STSI Surakarta) with Darsono, S.Kar, M.Hum (Dosen STSI Surakarta); Pak Netra himself re-mastered from the original cassette; and Darsono singing in Pak Netra's style.

LOU HARRISON: scores for gamelan

 

Every one is invited to contribute notes on their performance of these pieces, so that later versions of the score will clarify and enhance future performances.

Main Bersama-sama, for gamelan degung and French horn, contains transpositions for Javanese gamelan in pelog barang, and notes on the first performances, compiled by Trish Neilsen.. A part for peking was notated with Sundanese ciphers.There is a Sibelius file: if it can be opened it may be included in later editions.
