Form and Structure Gamelan lends itself to an in-depth study of musical form and structure
Similarities between Gamelan Ensembles and Orchestras http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFzNNy44_M8 The replication of instruments in various sizes combined with the different functions of “sections” within the gamelan ensemble can be compared to the Western symphony orchestra. Does this compatibility contribute to the popularity and effectiveness of gamelan as a teaching device in western music programs? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0UYncHSEWs
Effects of Tourism on Traditional Music This is a good place to discuss the effects of tourism on local cultures, the phenomenon of the cultural attraction, and the growing standardization of traditions. In Bali, new genres, developed to entertain tourists, are accepted by Balinese themselves as part of “traditional” culture.
