Song Production Information
I like to listen to gamelan by the riverside while I broil food in my brazier.
I like to listen to gamelan while I recite beautiful Japanese poetry.
I like to make my friends listen to gamelan when I reconcile with them after a fight, instead of saying sorry. I like to play gamelan for shy people who can't bring themselves to ask, to hide their embarrassment.
I like to listen to gamelan while sitting on the floor, hands on my knees, watching static camera footage of highways on TV late at night and in the early morning.
I like gamelan.
