This volume of Gamelan of Java, Vol. 4, Puspa Warna, was designed mainly to showcase how classical Javanese gamelan music—karawitan—has intrinsic and remarkable capabilities of regenerating itself through internal variations.

An out-of-the-ordinary presentation of works, well-known and highly esteemed in classical Javanese gamelan music. Puspa Warna, sent into space with the Voyager, is presented here in two separate performances with different interpretations and internal ensemble variations. Sekar Gadhung is also performed in two different renditions, allowing two pesindhen (female singers) to compete for excellency. The rarely-heard, mystical Gadhung Mlati is sung here by a third outstanding pesindhen.  Printed CD notes include contributions by Bapak Sumarsam and Dr. Sarah Weiss, while full notes in an attached PDF file expand on the subject of variations occurring in actual performances by Javanese musicians.
