Low Tech Ensemble to present concert

The Low Tech Ensemble will present compositions played on the gamelan.

Western Carolina University’s School of Music will present the university’s Low Tech Ensemble in a concert of Javanese gamelan music at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 12, in the recital hall of the Coulter Building.

The free program will include traditional compositions played on an iron slendro gamelan. A gamelan is not a single instrument but an ensemble of mostly bronze or iron percussion instruments. Javanese gamelan music is traditionally used for entertainment and to accompany puppet plays, dances and commemorative events.
