Presentation by Wukir Suryadi (Senyawa)

Instrument builder and performer Wukir Suryadi (of Senyawa) talks about his work, drawing inspiration for instruments that combine Javanese tradition and contemporary invention.

He will provide insights into his unique construction methods, interweaving acoustic and electronic approaches, a discipline he shares with our Hacklab participants this week. He will also discuss his instrument builder collaboration, which drew together visual artists and musicians across Indonesia and Australia, curated by Kristi Monfries and Joel Stern. 



Senyawa, the duo of Rully Shabara and Wukir Suryadi, uniquely manages to embody the aural flavours of Javanese music while exploring the framework of experimental music practice, pushing the boundaries of both traditions. In so doing, the music strikes a perfect balance between avant-garde influences and cultural heritage to create truly contemporary Indonesian music.
