Roberto Rodriguez and Susie Ibarra create Filipino gong electronica with hypnotic beats and haunting melodies that explore the essence of trance.

Skillfully combining intricate melodies with complex quick rhythms, Kulintang is an advanced Filipino musical style that also refers to the central instrument in the music’s traditional ensemble. Consisting of a series of eight differentially pitched bowl-shaped gongs free floating in a wooden tray, the Kulintang is played percussively with soft sticks.

Sounding somewhat like a richly resonant organic vibraphone, Kulintang’s melodies in the hands of Ibarra lend themselves particularly well to jazz improvisation.

Ibarra integrates electric guitar and bass, laptops, loops, and ambient grooves into the mix.
