Extremely cool to see students actually make and tune gamelan instruments. The U-M gamelan is a real treasure, and seeing engineering and art + design students figure out the "technical" side of making such things is just superb. Currently on a Fulbright in Central Java, so my days and nights are full of gamelan music (even though I'm a historian,) but so sweet to hear (and see) this happening from the middle of North Campus! Way to go Susan and students. Sukses banget!!

Thanks for the comment Charley! Susan performed with the students, but actually the class is team taught by Lou Marinaro (A&D), Steven Ball (School of Music, Theatre & Dance), Greg Wakefield (College of Engineering) and Paul Kominsky (College of Engineering). It's fantastic example of cross-campus collaboration!
