Last fall members of MIT’s Gamelan Galak Tika undertook a project that deftly combined music and engineering–they built electronic versions of traditional Balinese gamelan instruments. They wrapped up the project in just five months, with generous help from furniture maker Quentin Kelley and Alex Rigopolous ’92, SM ‘94, a founding member of Galak Tika and current CEO of Rock Band maker, Harmonix. In August 2010 they debuted the instruments. At New York’s Lincoln Center. With Kronos Quartet.
