Gamelan Bike Bike is a 10 member ensemble dedicated to performing new works for gamelan, including recent compositions from guest composer I Putu Gede Sukaryana (Balot) from Bali. In 2012, materials to build the instruments were collected from scrap metals, including 100 discarded bicycle frames, which were re-shaped into various metallophones and gongs. The ensemble has presented performances with the Western Front, Vancouver New Music, and the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, and in 2017 released Hi-Ten, a collection of original works with the Indonesia-based label Insitu Recordings.
