It seems like veteran naturalist and broadcaster David Attenborough is looking for someone to remix some gamelan music he recorded in Bali 70 years ago. Here’s a link to the contest: https://www.songlines.co.uk/news/songlines-and-prs-foundation-announce-new-remix-competition, which also has a Dropbox d/l of the track. It might make good Octatrack or Digitakt fodder even if you don’t want to enter the contest:
If you want to enter the deadline is June 10th.
Oh, and here’s a tiny bit of Wikipedia research on Balinese gamelan tunings at Wikipedia, which may help, or not:
Balinese gamelan instruments are built in pairs that are tuned slightly apart to produce interference beats, ideally at a consistent speed for all pairs of notes in all registers. This concept is referred to as “ombak,” translating to “wave,” communicating the idea of cyclical undulation. One instrument, tuned slightly higher, is thought of as the “inhale,” and the other, slightly lower, is called the “exhale.” [Also called the “blower” and the “sucker,” or pengimbang and pengisep in Bali.] When the inhale and the exhale are combined, beating is produced, meant to represent the beating of the heart, or the symbol of being alive. It is thought that this contributes to the “shimmering” sound of Balinese gamelan ensembles. In the religious ceremonies that contain gamelan, these interference beats are meant to give the listener a feeling of a god’s presence or a stepping stone to a meditative state. The scale roughly approximates that of the phrygian mode of the Western major scale (E-E on the white keys of the piano), with the notes EFGBC corresponding to the note positions 12356 in the slendro scale used by most gamelan
