about

The Gong Prophet - Loren Nerell - A Soundquest Music Release

With his long time dedication and fascination in creating hybrids of traditional Indonesian infused ethno ambient releases, Loren Nerell has created a highpoint in his body of work that spans well over 35 years.

Gong Prophet draws inspiration from the gong, one of the oldest musical instruments in the world with examples being traced back over 4,000 years. The name ‘gong’ comes from the island of Java, where one of the major centers of gong production is based. Loren’s extended visits to Indonesia over the years has deeply informed his music.

On this project, Loren enlisted an impressive list of guest musicians to further enhance the bridge between the traditional and modern worlds. Guests include Patrick Bagacina, Forrest Fang, Markus Reuter, Steve Roach, Mark Seelig, Nyoman Wenten and Erik Wollo.

Throughout Asia, gongs are a symbol of mysticism, good fortune, mastery and tradition. Loren artfully honors the historic aura of the gong while creating an engaging balance between contemporary textures, rhythm and traditional Indonesian ceremonial music.
