Track 6: Pig in the Kraton!

Composed by: Andy Channing

This tells the tall, twisted tale of a pig's existential crisis and misadventures in a Javanese palace (kraton).

This piece has appeared in carious incarnations - first in a cersion for avant-rock band The Momes in 1990, later arranged for Javanese gamelan and recorded on the Alpha Beta Gamelan CD in 2000, then re-arranged for gong kebyar and finally for semar pagulingan.
