Summary
This book introduces the reader to the history, music and instruments specifically of the Central Javanese gamelan, although reference is also made to Balinese gamelan music. There is a detailed account of the ritualistic process by which a gamelan is made, while the book begins with an assessment of the influence of gamelan music on Western composers, from Debussy, to Benjamin Britten, to Steve Reich
