This mesmerising show is Plaid’s most ear-opening yet, blending their trademark sound with the hypnotic textures of a Javanese gamelan orchestra.
Performing new work created with Indonesian composer Rahayu Supanggah, the electronica duo weave a subtle soundscape around the Gamelan’s fluid rhythms, adding contemporary dissonances to ancient harmonies.
Commissioned by the Southbank Centre for Ether Festival 2009.
…the effect is bewitching… it’s illuminating to see artists from these two genres working together
