Plaid and Southbank Gamelan Players at Village Undergound – 8th Oct

Electro-alchemists Plaid, blend their trademark sound with the
mesmerising textures and rhythms of a Javanese gamelan orchestra.

Plaid will weave a subtle soundscape around the Gamelan’s fluid
rhythms, thickening the pounding of gongs with echo and delay, looping
intricate xylophone patterns, and adding eerie dissonances to ancient

Gamelan has been a huge influence on lots of western music , from
ecstatic rockers to electronic artists such as Aphex Twin and Kode9,
but they have never before shared the same stage, until now…

Commissioned by the Southbank Centre for Ether Festival 2009

‘…it’s illuminating to see artists from these two genres working
together directly…the effect is bewitching .’ Drowned in Sound
