About the Artists:

Gamelan Bike Bike draws its musical inspiration from Bali, Indonesia and its raw materials from the scrap metal bins of Vancouver. In 2012, instrument maker George Rahi collected over 100 discarded bicycle frames to build the instruments, configuring the colourful metal scraps into various types of metallophones and gongs. The 10 member ensemble is dedicated to performing new works for gamelan and has presented performances with the Western Front, Vancouver New Music, and the Vancouver Folk Music Festival. In 2017 they released Hi-Ten, a collection of original works with the Indonesia-based art collective and label Insitu Recordings. The ensemble is currently based at the Hadden Park Fieldhouse as part of the residency project through the Parks Board with the arts collective Publik Secrets.

Hadden Park is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.

This event is organized as part of the Publik Secrets residency at Hadden Park and is supported by the Vancouver Park Board's Fieldhouse Activation Program. Additional support received from the TD Park People grant.
