(p.3) One The Musical Scene in Solo

Marc Benamou

Oxford University Press

Chapter 1 sets the scene, providing a brief musical portrait of the city of Solo with some attention to history. Institutional (the royal court, the academies, the radio station) and noninstitutional contexts for gamelan music are contrasted, and some of the many kinds of music excluded from the study are outlined. Performance contexts, such as dance and wayang (shadow theater) accompaniment, are described, as well as the dramatis personae—the musicians whose words form the corpus of the book.

Keywords:   gamelan, Solo, royal court, institution, academy, wayang, history, dance
