Javanese Gamelan, An Inspiring Ensemble From Indonesia…
Become immersed in the ancient sound of the Javanese gamelan, now available as a virtual instrument from Impact Soundworks. This 1,500+ year-old musical ensemble and art form is centered around tuned, metallic percussion that, in unison, produces an evocative, meditative tone.
The sound of gamelan has inspired composers in the West for centuries: from Satie, Cage, Bartók, Messiaen, and Britten, to James Newton-Howard, Alexandre Desplat, and Bear McCreary. Now, it can inspire your music as well!
The virtual instrument is of the Javanese variety, as opposed to the more commonly-sampled Balinese variety, and gives you incredible control & playability with twelve individually sampled instruments.
