Yesterday I met Bobi Aulia Syafiq, president of Keluarga Paduan Angklung (KPA). KPA is a student society in ITB (Institut Teknologi Bandung) that has interest in Angklung. They also have annual concert using Angklung as their musical instrument. In their concert, usually they have 30 to 40 performers and each of them can hold 5 to 7 Angklung. I met Bobi (KPA) to borrow some Angklung for my audio sample. They are really supportive because I told them than I do this for my final project. I borrow 9 (nine) Angklung from them, 7 (seven) Angklung melody and 2 (two) Angklung elephant. Angklung melody have 30 (thirty) notes, numbered from 1 to 30. In this set I choose number 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30. Angklung elephant have 1 (one) full octave of notes from G to Fis and I choose C and F.
Each Angklung that I borrowed has two tubes. The bigger tube is the original note and the smaller tube is one octave above it. For my project I record each of this tube separately so I have to bind the other one using rubber band. Just like I wrote before in my last post, I will only record snapping so with this 9 (nine) Angklung, 2 (two) tubes, I have 18 sound samples. From this sound sample I will process it using Audacity to get the best recording.
