Welcome to Angklung Web Institute (AWI)! This website is a medium of information exchange about angklung knowledge and competence, especially diatonic angklung in orchestral composition. The Father of Angklung Daeng Sutigna first created the diatonic angklung in 1938. Until now, angklung still has to face many challenges of identity to be acknowledged as one of world’s standard music instruments. One major problem is that there is no firm standard yet in constructing, tuning, forming, playing, and compositing angklung. Another problem is that until today, an angklung music community as a media of education and industrialization of the angklung music hasn’t been founded yet. Through this website we would like to ask you who have a great concern to the development of angklung to pass this piece of information to the world in order to support this developing music instrument. Through this website we would like to convey an angklung-ical activity to an angklung team or community and hopefully someday the industrialization of angklung can be realized. Last, it is our duty to raise our angklung to be appreciated just like the other world’s standard music instruments. Thank you

Selamat datang di website Angklung Web Institute (AWI). Situs ini merupakan sarana bertukar informasi tentang pengetahuan dan kompetensi dalam musik angklung khususnya angklung diatonis dalam komposisi orkestrasi.

Sejak dirintisnya musik angklung diatonis oleh Bapak Angklung Daeng Soetigna 1938 hingga saat ini, musik angklung masih mengalami tantangan identitas untuk dapat diterima sebagai alat musik standar dalam dunia global. Belum kokohnya standar baik dalam hal konstruksi alat musik, penalaan dan bentuk, serta cara teknik memainkan maupun komposisi masih menjadikan kendala bagi musik angklung untuk dapat menjadi salah satu standar sebagai layaknya alat musik dunia.

Sementara itu di sisi lain masih belum tumbuhnya komunitas musik angklung sebagai suatu bagian dari pendidikan bahkan industri musik, menjadi tantangan tersendiri bagi tumbuh kembangnya musik angklung ini.

Melalui situs ini kami mengajak Anda semua yang memiliki perhatian bagi perkembangan musik angklung ini untuk dapat mendiseminasikan informasi kepada masyarakat dunia agar musik angklung dapat berkembang lebih baik di masa mendatang. Melalui gambar pengantar pada tulisan ini kami mencoba menyampaikan alternatif aktivitas yang kiranya dapat dikembangkan oleh suatu tim maupun komunitas musik angklung, sehingga di masa mendatang dapat dikembangkan menjadi suatu aktivitas industri.

Akhir kata, adalah suatu pekerjaan rumah bagi kita semua untuk mengangkat alat musik angklung kita sebagaimana layaknya alat musik standar dunia lainnya. Terima kasih.
