Following on from Moondog for Gamelan, EUROPALIA and the Barbican present a further exploration of this traditional Indonesian music. Planet Harmonik by Aloysius Suwardi is an exceptional project based around the Pythagorean concept of the music of the spheres. Suwardi, much like Moondog, is a highly skilled inventor of musical instruments many of which are used in Planet Harmonik. Amongst his sonic armoury are metallophones with motorised resonators, giant gambang xylophones and hydraulic water-filled bamboo flutes.
