One of the most controversial aspects of Javanese gamelan music is its musical mode, pathet . From her experience as a performer of sindhenan , or female singing, Walton analyses the melodies and defines the basic laws of mode for sindhenan . She explains more convincingly than previous authors how two systems of mode operate simultaneously in gamelan music to enhance its aesthetic appeal.
