Pre-tuning Sound Examples for
Gamelan Raras Arum

Here is a multipart image of a pelog saron, and another of a slendro saron sångå. If you click a bar, you’ll hear the sound of that bar. (The sound files are MP3, so they aren’t huge, but if you are on a modem you may want to think twice before clicking any of the links.) These are not high-quality sound, but they’ll give you some idea of what the instruments sound like. (Unfortunately, I haven’t figured out how to play them without sending you to another page. I know, it should be straightforward; will work on it. Also, some of these are a bit buzzy, and I need to re-record them.)

The Raras-Arum Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, registered with the Internal Revenue Service.
