Gending Chilao is an example of a piece which shares more in formal structure, mode, and other qualities with traditional Javanese music, but here combined with a Western emissary, the cello (retuned to match the gamelan). Chilao is a beautiful area in the nearby San Gabriel Mountains.
Recording: Here is an excerpt from the premiere performance by Tom Fla herty and the Harvey Mudd American Gamelan. (mpg format)
