Indonesian Music of the Spheres

The gamelan has always fascinated me with its ethereal tones. And the music includes a number of instruments I didn’t know about. This video captures not only the spectacular music but reveals the source of the sounds. Time, space, creation, destruction, the spiritual world in full spectrum, much of it created with something like cooking pots. This group really cooks.

And this seems to be the same piece from a different group. No idea how they keep the score. Like different symphonies, each must do it slightly differently with its own touches. I do love this music.
