The Momenta Quartet and master Javanese musician Darsono Hadiraharjo join forces with the Cornell Gamelan Ensemble, directed by Christopher J. Miller, to perform new works for gamelan and string quartet by Cornell DMA students Can Bilir, Miles Friday, and Piyawat Louilarpprasert. Each piece finds a unique solution to the challenge of reconciling and/or juxtaposing the timbral, procedural, and interactional aspects of two very distinct musical traditions.
