EthNoise! The Ethnomusicology Workshop invites you to a special lecture/workshop introduction to central Javanese gamelan. Ethnomusicologist Andrew Mall, an instructor in the Department of Music, at DePaul University School of Music, and the education coordinator for Friends of the Gamelan, will lead participants through the major instruments of this traditional percussion orchestra, with roots in the royal courts of Indonesia. We will learn some basic features of gamelan music, discuss the different roles of individual instruments in the ensemble, and learn to perform a short piece. No experience in gamelan or percussion instruments is needed or expected.
When: Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 4:30
Where: we will meet at Hyde Park Union Church on the corner of 56th and Woodlawn. Use the entrance on 56th, ring the buzzer for the ‘Fireplace Room,’ and identify yourself as part of EthNoise. The gamelan room is down the stairs and at the end of the
hall once you enter the building.
