All files must be deleted 24 hours after download, as they are for review and criticism purposes only - provided you follow this guideline, downloading from Court In The Act is legal as per s30(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988.

Comments make our work worthwhile. If you really enjoyed an album, tell us about it, we'd love to hear from you. If you hated it, tell us why.

Although music is a major part of all of our lives, we all have some form of external life. If there are periods in which no posts are added, I'm sorry, but that's how things happen. Even though I love blogging like this, sometimes I can't muster up the desire within myself to write about yet another album.

I'd like to say too that Court In The Act will never be run for personal profit. This means no advertisement, no premium schemes, and no LinkBucks. Megaupload is used because it strikes a fair balance between ease of upload and ease of download.

Suara Parahiangan Group - Degung Sabilulungan - Sundanese Music of West Java; Vol 2 [1995]

So first post today is a Gamelan post.For all of you who don't know Gamelan is the classical music of Indonesia which has no relation with the western classical we all hear. This genre has a very different rhythm form and musical scale among many others, instruments used are mostly percussion instruments hand drums, cymbals and countless chromatic percussion instruments (mostly stuff that resembles xylophones, marimbas, etc...), sometimes vocals are also used, like classical music many styles exist (mostly based on region not era though).I have very few information about this release in particular, only know this is a recording of a group lead by Ujang Suryana who is a famous suling player, being the suling a kind of flute/oboe thing.
This lack of information is due to Gamelan being sacred and almost propriety of the Indonesian government so all recording of true Gamelan have to be licensed and most performances are closed to the general public. Anyways this is one more weird release I show you, but this time it is truly weird trust me, this is nothing you ever heard before (unless you know the genre already).



  1. Fantastic, thank you for this! How does classical Indonesian music compare with that of India?
