Array/Evergreen Community Gamelan and Percussion Meetuphttp://www.meetup.com/Community-Gamelan-Everyone-Making-Beautiful-Music-Together/http://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/c/e/6/0/global_227752832.jpeg20130421
Have a seat and immediately join in the music making. These are fun, hands-on Meet Ups that bring people together to play beautiful Indonesian instruments. Along with a huge collection of percussion instruments including gongs, bowls, vibes, marimba, drums, djembe, congas, bells, chimes, shells and more, we also can use the Gamelan Instruments used in the recording of the soundtrack for Life of Pi (music by Mychael Danna).
Every note sounds just right and fires the imagination. Whether you want to meditate and dream or create grooves that move, it's fun and enthralling and anyone can do it. (there's a park right outside to visit and hang out as well). In existence for 40 years, Arraymusic provides the space and co-produces the event with the Evergreen Club Contemporary Gamelan who graciously donates the instruments. These instruments were used in the soundtrack of Life of Pi (for which Mychael Danna won an Oscar!) and can now be played by the community on a regular basis. Bring your friends. Meet new ones.
