I am a big fan of the soundtrack to the Japanese animated movie - Akira.

The soundtrack was performed by Geinoh Yamashirogumi a collective of 200 who mixes gamelan style instruments with more modern synthesizers and trad. japanese singing.

Im quite interested in exploring more Gamelan, I was wondering id there are other orchestras out there who fuse with other styles of music ?

Heck, Im thinking of doing it myself, albeit with samples rather than a real orchestra.
