Especially Sundanese composer Iwan Gunawan impressed with some of the pieces that he had been inspired by the works of American composer Steve Reich. In Kulu Kulu, carried out by two full gamelan orchestras together, glided fast rhythmic figures like waves in the surf over each other.

Five in Europe trained dancers and three traditionally trained dancers from Indonesia share the stage with 
composer Iwan Gunawan and his Javanese gamelan ensemble Kyai Fatahillah. Gunawan change traditional ways of playing on gamelan and Sundaneze instruments with contemporary compositional techniques. He pervades these delicately with electronics. A fascinating encounter that shows how different cultures can strengthen and collectively to get something new together.

"Ferschtman plays besides compositions by Bach, Paganini, Bartok and Isaye newly composed music of the Indonesian composer Iwan Gunawan. He offers with its electronics and percussion, sometimes with solid rhythms, beautiful At the same weight to the classical composers. "

"Fonem", for vocalists, gamelan and electronic sounds, opens up still a new dimension of music as Iwan has begun to all kinds of elements of language, including spoken word, into his instrumental musical concepts
and presentations.

Komposisi Iwan ”mengacaukan” nada. Setelah mengentak dengan Waled Kreasi, komposisi dengan laras pelog dan slendro secara bersamaan dimainkan dan dentingan bunyi piano dari organ menyelip di antara gamelan. Laras slendro yang menggambarkan suasana yang ramai dan menyenangkan ditutup dengan bunyi mendenging pada karya Gamelan Soundscapes. Demikian juga pada Minutes, yang mengembangkan pola melodi sederhana dari laras pelog dan slendro diubah menjadi melodi baru yang repetitif. Gong dan jenglong menutup komposisi yang menyuguhkan tabuhan gamelan yang pelan itu.
