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…
