Bowed Gamelan is a unique sampled instrument, made by contact-miking a Ugal - one of the principal metallaphones in the gamelan ensemble. The metal Ugal keys were bowed using a standard cello bow, vertically across the thin edge of the metal. Instead of a conventional microphone, a Trance Audio Trance Inducer contact mic was used. This gives the sound a detailed, surgical scraping quality. The result is a playable, musical metallic pad - an acoustic synthesizer patch.
