Years in the making, Bhima Swarga is a fascinating film project from one of the most creative electronic musicians around. Delightfully animating traditional paintings from the Kertha Gosa temple ceiling in Bali, Mori depicts the journey of the soul from hell to heaven in two versions: one scored using her signature laptop electronics and one scored by Matt Welch, featuring a full gamelan ensemble – the traditional musical instrument from Java and Bali – augmented by Ikue’s electronics and Welch on saxophone and percussion. A spectacular audiovisual presentation for all ages.
