Catherine Basset - Workshop

COSMOLOGICAL STRUCTURE OF GAMELAN MUSIC (IN JAVA, BALI AND SUNDA) AND ITS CONSEQUENCES FOR ETHNOMUSICOLOGICAL AND ANTHROPOLOGICAL RESEARCH

Workshop conducted by Catherine Basset at the Labyrinth, Zagarolo.

At this workshop, Catherine Basset (FIND grantee 2020, INALCO, associate member of the CNRS South-East Asian Centre) expounded her discovery of the cosmological structure of gamelan music and its interdisciplinary implications. During a stimulating debate, the question of vibration and the psychological impact of sounds and music was also addressed, subjects which in that central part of Indonesia show both background-related similarities and considerable formal differences concerning Daniélou’s in-depth analysis.
