Electric Junkyard Gamelan is the brainchild of bandleader and composer Terry Dame. Born out of desire to create a totally new and original sound Dame fused her two passions, making music and inventing and building things to form this totally unique group. While studying Balinese Gamelan in graduate school in 1997, Dame became intrigued with the high energy interlocking rhythms and the amazing ring of overtones created by the ensemble of metal gongs and xylophone-type instruments used in traditional Balinese music. An inventor by nature she began experimenting with making mainly percussion instruments out of found objects and junk from the local scrap yard. Thus was born the Electric Junkyard Gamelan.
