The first 7 tracks were recorded at our 30-year jublileum concert on November 19, 2011 in Rotterdam.

The next 3 track were from a small-group rehearsal and are for internal use only.

The next 3 tracks were recorded on gamelan Hamongkarsa at a rehearsal weekend on 30 October 2004, using the same equipment as below. These recordings include guest players of the group Istika. Please disregard the noise of the heating system - it was really too cold to do without.

The last 5 tracks were recorded on 10 May 2003 in Mueum Nusantara, Delft, the Netherlands on the gamelan Kyai Parijata. I used a CD recorder and two condensator microphones a 2m height. Unfortunately the visually pleasing museum exhibition of the instruments proved to be sub-optimal for recording this way: the bonang is too close and the gambang too far away. The audio has been compressed to 192kb/s MP3, which means the technical quality should be OK, but the files are rather large (1.4MB per minute of music).
