Notation for some of these pieces is given in a combination of plain text and HTML. Click on the title of the piece to go there.
Once you get there, a MIDI file should automatically load, playing the balungan of the piece, as well as the gerongan, if any. If you don't hear anything, check the setup of your browser. You may also access the MIDI file for each page directly: the location and file name of the MIDI file is the same as the HTML document, simply replace the suffix ".htm" with ".mid".
Note on Tuning: These pieces have been rendered in 12-tone equal temperment. The pitches chosen seemed to be the closest to those on our instruments. This is at times an unsatisfactory compromise, but these MIDI files are meant to give a basic "feel" of the balungan and vocal lines, not to be an accurate representation of a final product. At any rate, here are the scales I used:
Slendro: 1=C#, 2=D#, 3=F#, 5=G#, 6=A#
Pelog: 1=D#, 2=E, 3=F#, 4=A, 5=A#, 6=B, 7=C# OR
1=D, 2=Eb, 3=F, 4=G#, 5=A, 6=Bb, 7=C depending on my mood that day.
