Gadhon Tutorial (MPF4698.01)

Nicholas Brooke

An individual tutorial in the soft-style elaborating instruments of the gamelan, for students who have already studied gambang, suling, pesindhen, or gender. We will work on 2-3 works in each major pathet (tonality), as well as learn the tone-setting preludes known as pathetan. Playing together in a small gadhon ensemble will be part of the class, alongside occasional visits to klenengan in Wesleyan and New York.
