Kebyar Maya

If Evan Ziporyn's "Kebyar Maya" sounds vaguely Indonesian, that's because it's based on an actual Balinese gamelan piece, "Kebyar Ding." The "Maya" in Ziporyn's piece stands for contemporary music superstar Maya Beiser — who recorded the work in 2000, acoustically overdubbing her cello 18 times to luminous effect.
