A Note by the Composer

---------------------------------------

The gamelan music of Bali and Java uses an unusual pentatonic scale (C D F G B此自右上角有一個小寫的b) which is different from that employed in the pentatonic music of the Chinese (C D E G A). The Balanese call these five tones dong, deng, dung, dang, ding. The words have an onomatopoeic suggestiveness, for the initial "d" reminds us of something struck while the "ng" recalls the ringing of a gong or idiophone. The changing colours of the vowels from dark to light suggest the rising notes of the scale.

I have set this little piece for four voices: these could be SATB, SASA, TBTB or some other mixed combination. The work could be sung by chorus or soloists. The short staccato notes should be sung with a dry, wooden quality and in the long sustained notes the nasal quality of the "ng" should be emphasized. It would be a good idea for the singers to practice the scale until the words have become fixed to the notes since Gamelan requires a quick momentum for its effectiveness in performance.

    筆記由作曲家

    巴釐島和Java gamelan音樂使用是與在中國人的一個異常的五音標度(C D E G A)的五音音樂使用的那不同。 Balanese電話這五口氣東,鄧,糞,鐘聲。 詞有擬聲暗示,為最初的" d" 提醒被觸擊的我們某事,當"時; ng" 召回敲響鑼。 元音的改變的顏色從黑暗到光建議標度的上升的筆記。

    我設置了這個小的片斷為四聲音: 這些能是SATB、SASA、TBTB或者某一其他混雜的組合。 工作能由合唱或獨奏者唱歌。 應該唱歌短的斷續的筆記與乾燥,木質量和在長的被承受的筆記"的鼻質量; ng" 應該強調。 它是一個好想法為了歌手能實踐標度,直到詞變得固定對筆記,因為Gamelan為它的有效率在表現要求快的動量。
