Colin McPhee was born March 15 , 1900 in Montreal, Canada. He is known for being the first composer
to make an ethnomusicological study of Bali. His work, Tabuh-Tabuhan (1936) combines Balinese and
traditional Western musical elements. It is an all percussion piece. I really enjoyed this piece because of
the percussive sounds and because of its uniqueness. I personally have never heard anything like what
McPhee wrote, so it was very interesting to listen to.
