The Golden Thread: Music for Gamelan

The University of Leeds Gamelan Ensemble will perform a collection of traditionsal music, contemporary repertoire and new pieces on the School of Music’s Javanese Gamelan. This set of bronze gongs and metallophones, named The Golden Thread in reference to Leeds’ strong connections with the textile industry, was hand-crafted in the court city of Surakarta in Central Java fourteen years ago. The ensemble is directed by Emily Crossland (MA York), a former student of Dr Neil Sorrell and a performer, composer and educator with various northern gamelan ensembles.
