A Bowl of Tibetan Bells

This is a piece using Garritan World Sample Set (Tibet singing bowls and Tibet bells) and pianoteq. It also uses a non-octave tuning that is an infinite stack of just major seconds (scala file below).

As a bonus I have two more pieces that I wrote tonight.

Using Garritan’s World sample set I play a Balinese Gamelan in a way I can only imagine is not traditional.

Gamelan Abuse in combined slendro + Pelog tuning

And I wrote a woodwind + harpsichord piece in John O’Sullivan’s Blue JI tuning and Garritan Personal Orchestra.
