    Gamelan is the name for instrumental orchestra music in Indonesia specifically on the island of Java. The instruments of the Gamelan are for the greater part percussion instruments, including instruments of the xylophone type, mostly made of bronze, and drums and gongs. The first mentioned instruments are for the melody and the second group, the gongs and the drums, form the rhythm section. 
             
    However, gamelan in its most extensive composition consist of several other string instruments plus a flute and one or more male and/or female vocalists. This extensive form is called Karawitan. Some examples of this art the presented to you on this record. Karawitan can consist of either classical melodies accompanied by gamelan as is the case with the song Madumurti", or it can consist of lighter music such as is recorded on side 2 of this record. The composition called Djineman" is a typical example of this latter kind. Djineman is a song that is played among other things as an intermezzo during a wayang performance or a concert. The song is the most important part of the Djineman. After "Sedyo Murti" you hear the Djineman "Uler Kambang" (2) which is a very sentimental melody composed quite recently. 
            
    "Kodok Ngorek" (3) on the contrary, is a very old classical melody. Originally it had to be played by a special orchestra. The melody is a very simple one and consists of only several continuously repeated tones. It is a ceremonial piece played on special occasions, such as wedding parties. However it can also be played by a common gamelan-ensemble, as is done on this record and only the first part of the composition is more or less in its original form. The middle part of the melody is worked out to a complete composition with more instruments than in the original Kodok Ngorek orchestra. The real age of Kodok Ngorek is uncertain. It is supposed to be at least several centuries old, other estimates run as high as a thousand years. 
              
    "Suwe Ora Djamu" (4) is popular. It is sung in the style of children's songs (Dolanan), and for many years has been considered worthy to be played as a gamelan composition. 
           
    "Suwe Ora Djamu" has a catchy melody and proves that the extremes in the Karawitan lie far apart. The same orchestra plays the heavy classical works with the same ease as this light genre which nowadays are inserted into many gamelan performances.
    The Javanese Gamelan belongs to the most extensive orchestra forms in Asia, with a strength of twenty to thirty or even more musicians. Besides the song part, the leading instruments are the
    Rebab, a two-stringed instrument, and the Kendang, consisting of one or more drums which in cooperation with the Gong section and other cymbals provide the rhythmics. 
             
    The big gong is the characteristic instrument of a gamelan, a big size cymbal with a deep sound. Among the many decorative sounds of the melody instruments, the group of Saron takes the most prominent part as the performer of the simplest melody, the principle melody around which the composition is built. A saron has six or more bronze soundbars played with a wooden mallet. All other melody instruments, the xylophone type (Gambang) as well as the metallophone type (Gender), or the Gong type (Bonang) are played with two sticks or as for instance the cither (Tjelempung) plucked with both hands.
    Neither of the Javanese scales,
    Slendro and Pelog, are very much like the Western scale. They are based on scales of five notes per octave, but in the Pelog and rarely in the Slendro, changes in the scale are achieved by additional notes. Pelog has, on the instruments of the Javanese gamelan, two extra notes, therefore seven notes in all
