We’re live and direct from the Serpentine Pavilion in Hyde Park with a mesmerising performance by aga ujma. The first of five performances happening this summer as part of @theserpentinegallerys x Boiler Room: Park Nights 2021.
Titled ‘sun was glazed in rainbow’, the piece is based on personal stories, poems, traditional Indonesian musical pieces, and compositions inspired by the Serpentine Pavilion and its character.
Conceived as a transformative movement across two chapters, the performance shifts from an intimate solo set written for sasando, an Indonesian 32-strings bamboo zither and harp, to a more expanded Javanese ensemble of intricate gamelan instruments, including bronze xylophones, gongs, rebab – a bowed fiddle – and other various traditional and non-traditional percussion instruments.
