Konsep Essentially, music, or sound is untamed energy which is open to interpretation. However, through the formation of man’s culture and civilization, music has been given meaning, symbol, usage or function within the context of man’s life. Most notably, in the world of art. In the case of the performing art, music is sometimes positioned at the second level, or often functions as subordinate of some other main element. Because of this, in the world of dance, for example, musical composition transform to become accompaniments of dance. It is interesting to observe what has been achieved by Kadek Suardana, Mari Nabeshima, I Gusti Putu Sudarta and the Arti foundation in the creation tittled Sri Tanjung: The scene of Innocence, notably in the field of music. Here music plays major rules in enabling the dancers to realize their dramatic expressions to their maximum. In the dance drama, music functions as important artistic element, and plays a substantial part in shaping the story line, conflict of character, and the essential massage of “faith and self retrospect” innate story of Sri Tanjung, a story of penglukatan or ruwatan (purification). Clearly, music has functioned as the defining element in the conception of this work of performing art. It’s modal aspects involving the preparation musical instruments which are out of the ordinary of the process of composition on the computer, followed by transference of completed compositions to acoustic instruments, are all a part of a long and winding process which requires patience. The intensity of this process has given birth a new kind of form of model of music for the dance drama. This is different from what has been done by musician of Bali in the process of realizing their thought and feelings into work of performing art or theater. In this work, the role of music is not second to other artistic elements. Here, music stand on equal ground as theater and dance.
