ENSEMBLE

I joined Gamelan Dharma Swara in June 2017. I had seen the ensemble at Basilica Soundscape, as well as Make Music NY. So after I spent a few invigorating months recording musicians in Indonesia with ethnomusicologist Palmer Keen, joining the group felt practically inevitable. The collaborative nature of the ensemble has informed my professional practice as a product designer at a news outlet, a similarly intricate organization.
