Abstract

Binaleg at Sinulug para sa Orkestra is a music composition for orchestra and various Philippine traditional instruments such as bamboo percussions and the kulintang ensemble. These traditional instruments are commonly used by indigenous groups from the northern and southern regions of the Philippine islands. The inspiration for the piece comes from Philippine and other Asian music cultures such as the cyclical structures of Indonesian traditional music, interlocking melodies of Kalingga music, heterophonic textures of traditional vocal practices, and ritualistic performances.

It explores the use of these traditional instruments within the context of the western orchestra.
