Degung Hayley Suviste

Degung is a set of three acousmatic miniatures that collectively explore the musical and spiritual characteristics of the gamelan (specifically the University of Manchester’s Sudanese Degung). In Indonesian traditional thinking the gamelan is sacred and is believed to have supernatural power. Degung follows the gamelan on its journey from its natural form and sound to the completely transformed and supernatural.
