Dvipantara by Laurentius Symphony

Dvipantara is the title of Laurentius Symphony Orchestra's program in 2019. It is a collection of new works by LSO composers. Each of this work is inspired by a particular region of Indonesia.

4 composers submitted works based on Dvipantara's framework. Andrew Sudjana, a great pianist and a violist for the LSO wrote an arrangement of two folk songs. It features the sasando, a string instrument from Rote island.

Adrie Pramudya, a well seasoned arranger for the LSO produced an original work, Tingang Rangga. It is based on Dayak mythology, a beautiful combination of Sape and Orchestra.

The young and super tallented Filipus Wisnumurti wrote two pieces. Puncak Jaya, inspired by Indonesia's tallest peak, and Sawerigading's Voyage, based on Bugis creation myth.

This program also included 3 of my works, Layar Putri, Puisi dari Maluku, and Sumatera. If all goes as planned, the CD will be released this year.

St. Laurentius Chamber Orchestra, 7 years of service

We started this group as a small chamber orchestra on August 2005. Over time, more and more people joined this orchestra, and the title "Chamber Orchestra" does not longer fit for its size.

Last August, 35 members of the Orchestra showcased an evening concert, performing all-time favourites from the classical music: Bach's Gavotte, Beethoven's Minuet in G, Schubert's Serenade, and similar compositions.

All of the  works performed, were rearranged for a more complete instrumentation provided by the orchestra (many of the pieces were written for much simpler groups or even solo performance).

The program used solo performers accompanied by the orchestra, showing the character of individual instruments. Other than the obvious choice of using violin, cello, flute, and clarinet as soloists, the concert also performed some unusual solo instruments: the violin's cousin viola, and the double bass (showed in the picture, performing Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata)

Two movie soundtracks

It has been a while since the last update of this blog. I have been extremely busy lately, but here is some of my latest work, two short tunes I made for films. The first one was written for a short movie "Strangers", and used as the ending credit. It features a Ferry Matias at the cello. The film is directed by Marky Jahja Ali as a promotional video for a book by Farida Susanty.


The second one was written for a video art, a project by Andy Dewantoro. It is also directed by Marky. It is a simple piano tune used as the background music for the video. It is talking about the loneliness of old, abandoned buildings.

ABRSM High Scorer Concert

The last time I checked, it is supposed to take approximately 2 weeks in UK to get the ABRSM exam result. Well, not here in Indonesia. I took the 5th grade theory exam, and I have to wait for almost eternity for the result. When it finally arrived, I had only 2 weeks left to register for the Grade 8 practical (the 5th grade theory is a prerequisite). Well, the deadline is just getting shorter.

After the Grade 8 practical, I have to wait another 3 months for the result, which is presented in just the examiner's comment sheet. Another 2 months passed, and I finally received the Grade 8 diploma. After still another 2 months (7 months from the exam), I received an invitation to join the high scorer concert. Registration deadline? 1 day. Great job!

In the High Scorer Concert, I'm supposed to play one of the exam piece that receives the highest score. Which one? Well, they told me which one to play, 3 days before the concert. So, they really do a marvelous job here. When they have to send something to the candidate, it takes forever. But when the candidate has to send something to them, they give a very short deadline.

Anyway, I'm going to perform JS Bach BWV 1035 for flute in Grand Serela, Bandung, this Saturday, 9 May 2009. My accompanist, Andrew Sudjana, has not recieved the score yet by the time of this writing. Classical music concert does not get any better than this.
