    The creativity of new Balinese musical compositions has an impact on Balinese composers, the existence of Balinese music, and the public attitude attributing meaning to the presence of new Balinese musical compositions. The impact on composers consists of psychological aspects because it provides room for freedom to innovative; social aspects of being observed from a heightened social status; and economic aspects marked by the financial gain of the composers, whether in direct connection with creativity. The impact of creativity on the existence of Balinese music can be observed in terms of both quantity and quality. In terms of quantity, new works are born ‘like mushrooms in the rainy season’ because creativity provides a momentum for any composer to keep experimenting. In term of quality, creativity affects the development of both physical (form/presentation) and conceptual understanding of such symbolic meaning, discourse and imagery. The impact of creativity on the public attitude in Bali manifests itselt in the increase of open-minded people in terms of various new paradigms in music, thus undermining the ethnocentric attitude of some people. This attitude was reflected in the attention, appreciation and pride of the Balinese people towards their own music.
