Between December 2020 and November 2022 the Glasgow-based community group Gamelan Naga Mas worked remotely with two Indonesian musicians, Peni Candra Rini and Rangga Purnama Aji. This musical collaboration was made possible by the Estuary platform, which allowed for real-time livecoded improvisations between locations in Scotland, Indonesia, and the USA. In this paper we discuss and reflect upon the technical, musical, and human factors that have made this project a success and indicate some directions for future exploration.
