Padang is a series of electronic works for dance. The works in the series are created entirely from archival recordings of Indonesian Gamelan music which have been cut up, processed, and reassembled to form tiny sonic landscapes. The performers interact with these landscapes, incorporating a wide mix of classical Indonesian dance tradition and contemporary performance practice.
The Padang Series was created for Prince M. Gentile Andilolo and Abdi Karya and first presented during the summer of 2014 at The Watermill Center in Water Mill, NY.
