Be transported straight to the heart of West Java, Indonesia, during this captivating musical performance by Evergreen Club Contemporary Gamelan (ECCG).
The ensemble performs on the gamelan, an Indonesian collection of bronze (and sometimes bamboo) instruments including flutes, gongs, and drums. Its work is featured on film soundtracks including Antoine Fischer and The Ice Storm. ECCG composer Mychael Danna won the 2013 Oscar for Original Best Score for the Life of Pi.
During this performance ECCG celebrates one of its mentors, composer and educator Lou Harrison. Expertly moving between traditional Indonesian, European and North American repertoires, the group’s eight Toronto-based musicians present new arrangements of Harrison’s music and premiere a new work by composer Peter Hatch.
