Book Description:
While many Western scholars have discussed the technical aspects of Balinese music or the traditional contexts for performance, little has been written in Western languages about Balinese discourses on their music. This book seeks to understand the experience of music in Bali according to Balinese voices through an analysis of oral and written discourses on music, mainly by musicians and shadow play puppeteers from the village of Sukawat, and scholars, teachers, administrators, and students from the Indonesian College of the Arts (STSI) in the city of Denpasar. These two areas provide a useful contrast between the musical thought of a traditional village and that of an urban, modern college, during a period of unprecedented modernization and globalization. Brita Heimarck concentrates on Balinese discourses, thus enabling individual performers and scholars to represent themselves, making this study more of a critical discussion among equals than a Western interpretation of 'others.'
