Thinking Musically incorporates music from many diverse cultures and establishes the framework for exploring the practice of music around the world.

Music in Bali introduces the ensemble tradition of Balinese music, reflecting cooperative aspects of the island's social organization. Drawing on many years of study with Balinese performers in the United States and extensive fieldwork in Bali, author Lisa Gold presents contemporary Balinese performance within its cultural and historical context, linking Bali's rich past to its current role in modern, globalized society. She illustrates how new compositions borrow material from earlier traditions while also allowing for individual expression and innovation in vibrant present-day culture. By describing various performances--from a temple ceremony, to a shadow puppet performance, to a masked dance drama--Music in Bali surveys a wide range of performance contexts, from the highly sacred to the secular. It looks at the interconnected layers of the Balinese musical tradition, showing how the island's music, dance, theater, and ritual are intertwined. Music in Bali is enhanced by eyewitness accounts of local performances, interviews with key performers, and vivid illustrations. Packaged with a 70-minute CD containing examples of the music discussed in the book, it features guided listening and hands-on activities that encourage readers to engage actively and critically with the music.

    This is another really good book in the Global Music Series (yes, I am reading every one of these that I can get my hands on). While heavily focusing on gamelan, Gold takes an expansive view of Balinese music. She gives an overview of the cultural values that gamelan music reflects as well as the social and cultural functions of gamelan music. And, of course, there is a very detailed exploration of gamelan music and how it works, with many listening exercises.

And, of course, there is a very detailed exploration of gamelan music and how it works, with many listening exercises. Gold also gave an overview of the history and development of gamelan ensembles, styles, a repertoire. I especially liked the way Gold incorporated selections that broke down and isolated elements of the music, because Balinese gamelan has, at times, a very dense texture and it can be hard to parse out individual parts. Music in Bali was a really informative and fascinating look at a musical culture I find really interesting.

    I picked up this book before traveling to Bali to participate in a gamelan performance at the Bali Arts Festival... so I was well within the target audience. Although I have 14 years of training as a pianist, I never studied classical music in a classroom. This book is written by and for those with that type of vocabulary and discourse. I mostly followed it because of practical experience playing gamelan, but there were times when it was a bit too technical.

    A volume in the Global Music series, dealing with gamelan music in Bali. This is much more varied than I had thought. I liked the music, and the selections on the CD were long enough to hear it.
