While returning to Jogjakarta in late 2014 to play some music with fellow curry and music enthusiast Reuben Lewis, we managed to score some time in a gamelan room at the Jogjakarta Institut Of The Arts. What followed was an experimental exploration into gamelan. We improvised with an old friend of mine, Enriko Gultom, and new friend Anggit Wirasentana. Here is our gamelan exploration which Enriko called God Is A Lonely Austronaut. Reuben also plays trumpet on the recording with an assortment of different mutes. I was having way too much fun playing the gong to even think about playing saxophone.
