Only 0.5 credit hour. You could actually chose any skill class you want. from sewing, cooking, swimming, and even photography. For me, i took the Gamelan Skill Class.
As I know nothing about this traditional music instrument, i decided to give a try.
This Gamelan Skill Class divided in 2 part. Already took the first part last semester and its all about Gamelan Melayu. This semester i am taking the 2nd part. But this time its about Gamelan Jawa. Even our 'cikgu' was from Jogjakarta!
Javanese Gamelan was a litle bit hard compared to Malay Gamelan.
But its really sound nice if you play it in synch with others players.
Basically, for what i ve already learn, there a few equipment that is a MUST to have in a gamelan group.
-Saron ( Pekin & Baron )
-Gambang-Gong ( Agung & Suwukan )
Yeap, weird names. But i believed there are reoson behind those names. SUNSILK did not called SUNSILK for nothing right? (^__^)
I played the Saron Baron. Ah, gomen, i didn't have the pictures for all instruments.
But i am sharing you this. Please, take a look.
Meet my class mate, Najmi. She was so focus playing her instrument at first.
