KADAPAT // KADAPAT LP+7"

£28.00
  • Availability:

This is a record +7" released by strange beats duo KADAPAT from Bali, Indonesia from DJ bar SUB STORE in Koenji, Tokyo.

Contains seven pieces of experimental gamelan music that combines traditional instruments such as the jegog (bamboo harp) and gundel (glockenspiel) with electronics.

Below is a commentary by the label.

"KADAPAT is a music project by Yogi and Barga based in Bali, Indonesia. We use Balinese white/black magic as a spirit in experimental electronic gamelan music with the aim of conveying tradition and urban legends.

Getting to know KADAPAT means meeting young millennials from the outskirts of Bali who have been indoctrinated with gamelan and its traditions from a young age. In addition to their technical proficiency, they perform gamelan in Banjar traditional and religious ceremonies. Banjar is a region that is authorized to regulate and manage its community based on local traditions and manners. They fiercely confront conservative norms and their transgressive cosmologies. As millennials, they are also embedded in urban culture, technology, and Balinese cosmopolitanism. These hybrid identities become increasingly complex as they experience the formal art education dimension of the Western educational system.

These elements are embodied in KADAPAT's work included on this album. It is intertwined in a network of perception and ridicule. Each element or texture has an agreed-upon sound, but in a sense it often appears independently to signal its presence. Overall, the compositions on this album sound political. Radical imagination is expressed within the complex conditions of local customs. Experiments are a process of trial and error. Will testing Kadapat performances in banjars, art schools, underground clubs, beach parties, metal music festivals, and weddings provoke extreme controversy? It's worth a try. Just talk. "

"Kadapat is a music project by Yogi and Barga and based in Bali, Indonesia. Using Balinese white/black magic as a spirit in experimental electronic-gamelan music with the aim of conveying traditions and urban legend.

Getting to know Kadapat means meeting millennial youth from the suburbs of Bali who were taught gamelan and its traditions from a young age. Not only technically skilled, they also perform gamelan for traditional and religious ceremonies in Banjar, a neighborhood authorized to regulate and manage the community, based on local tradition and manners. They're intensely dealing with the conservative norms and its transcendental cosmology. As millennial entities, they are also embedded in urban culture, technology, and Balinese cosmopolitanism. These hybrid identities become increasingly complex when they experience the dimensions of formal art education with a western pedagogical system.

These elements are embodied in Kadapat's works on this album. It is intertwined in a network of perceiving and sneering. Each element and texture has a consensual sound, but in some ways are frequently emerges independently trying to show its existence. Overall, the compositions in this album sound political. Radical imaginations are expressed in intricate conditions for them: the local mores. Experimentation is a trial effort. Will testing Kadapat's performances in Banjar, on an art school, at underground club, at a beach party, at a metal music festival, or at a wedding event cause a polemic? It's worth a try. We just need to talk."
