Improvisation by Stanley Castelo (Tambourine and Kiddie Drum Sticks) and
Cris Garcimo (Triangle, Castanets, Toy Flute and Toy Grand Piano).
Inspired by Jose Maceda. Thank you to Dayang Yraola, David Dino Guadalupe and UP Center for Ethnomusicology
"Gentle Universe played during the opening of the Jose Maceda 2013 exhibit at UP Vargas Museum, where Dino saw one of our toy grand pianos. After our set, he shared a story that Jose Maceda has a composition on toy piano that sounds like Philippine folk music.
We haven’t heard the piece yet but we were inspired by Maceda's idea of using toy grand piano to play folk-inspired music. This is an improvisation using our toy grand piano. We also used our toy flute, castanets, triangle and tambourine."
