Recommend this film

Mettler brings us into the world of the mystical and the unconscious through his exploration of this extraordinary culture. balifilm was originally commissioned as a stage performance, created from diary images and sounds collected in 1990 and 1992 by Peter Mettler on the island of Bali. The soundtrack is a live recording of eight Gamelan musicians playing the bronze and wooden instruments of Indonesia during the projection of the film. balifilm is a personal, lyrical observation and expression of the creative pulse of an extraordinary culture.

Music created by the development of fragments of compositions by Trevor Tereski, Larry Lake, Andrew Timar, John Wyre and the Evergreen Club Gamelan. Also by traditional TAIKO, Leonard Eto and the work of Kodo. Arrangements by Bill Parsons, Mark Duggan, Blair Mackay and Peter Mettler.

Music performed by the Evergreen Club Gamelan Ensemble: Bill Parsons, Bill Brennan, Mark Duggan, Paul Ormandy, Paul Houle, Blaire Mackay, Andy Morris and Andrew Timar.
