Peter Blasser: Sidrazzi Gamelan at Wesleyan University
A sidrazzi is an electronic organ that emits a spectrum of pitched and chaotic sounds. The gamelan is an ensemble of gongs and a music of multiple-layered aesthetics. Through compositions and improvisations, graduate music student Peter Blasser’s ensemble will weave the two together. Event takes place on Tuesday, September 23, 2014, 9pm at Wesleyan’s World Music Hall.
