Virtual Gamelan [2020]

Project name: Virtual Gamelan Instruments
Year: 2020
Role: Developer

The Covid-19 pandemic of 2020 brought up a significant challenge for many performance groups, including our Gamelan Parakanca Duta and Gamelan Gongborn group. The groups were unable to rehearse, shows were canceled. To explore an alternate medium, I developed this Virtual Gamelan Instruments to be played on a web browser. The idea came from one of my previous project, Gamelan Pelog Salendro in 2012, a virtual gamelan software.

One of the motivation was to create a virtual performance as a tribute to the former Ambassador of Indonesia in Sweden and his family, who has been very supportive to the development of the two gamelan groups in Stockholm.
