The outstanding musicians of Gamelan Pacifica pay tribute to the great Javanese gamelan builder Suhirdjan whose recent death was mourned by the ensemble. Many of the instruments used by the ensemble were built by Suhirdjan back in the mid 1980's. Over the years these instruments have added greatly to our lives and to the musical life of Seattle. The concert will feature the composition Jangkung Kuning Mataram, a piece from the Central Javanese city of Yogakarta where Suhirdjan made his home as well as some important contemporary gamelan compositions dating from the 1980's when the Suhirdjan instruments first arrived in Seattle as well as premieres of two new pieces.

Founded in 1980, Gamelan Pacifica is among the finest ensembles in the United States devoted to the performance of gamelan music. It is an active and adventurous ensemble, with a reputation for creating diverse productions merging traditional and contemporary musical forms with dance, theater, puppetry, and visual media. The ensemble has performed at the Smithsonian Institute's Festival of Indonesia, New Music Across America Festival, Vancouver New Music Society, On the Boards, Walker Art Center, Performing Arts Chicago, and elsewhere. Visiting artists who have worked with Gamelan Pacifica include some of the most notable artists of Indonesia including Sutrisno Hartana, Wayan Sinti, Didik Nini Thowok, Sri Djoko Rahardja, I Made Sidia, Endo Suanda, Dedek Wahyudi, Goenawan Mohamad, and Tony Prabowo. Gamelan Pacifica's CD, Trance Gong (O.O. Discs) has received international acclaim.
