Production Details

The story of an elderly woman and her great-great-granddaughter living on an artificial island orbiting the sun. Refugees waiting to inhabit a new planet, an imagined community of people born in outer space. And a metaphor for displaced populations amidst the collapse of global systems on Earth. Amazeum+ contemplates what it means to be human in an artificial world far from home and how modern life could affect future generations as our planet exceeds its capacity to sustain its inhabitants.

Led by Indonesian born, SF Bay Area singer-songwriter Lisa Graciano, Purnamasari integrates Indonesian gamelan instruments and ideas into original yet accessible guitar-based songs and compositions. Purnamasari features performers experienced in both gamelan and western music, mixing and extending traditional techniques. They create a unique musical fusion, using a variety of gamelan instruments and tuning systems, mixed with western instruments tuned to a pitch allowing interaction with the gamelan. Purnamasari grew out of the Indonesian American Cross Cultural Music Project, a collaboration between Lisa and gamelan player Paul Miller, and includes musicians Megan Hewitt, Steve Lew, Keenan Pepper, Ion Nami Murata, Julia Martin, and Dillon Ingram. Purnamasari means ‘Essence of the Full Moon. The band previously performed at the San Francisco International Arts Festival in 2021, a performance that also served as the release of the band's concept album entitled Le Gong. Purnamasari has performed at the Ann Pitzer Center in UC Davis, on the eve of LUCE Foundation’s conference “Rethinking the History of Indonesian Music.
