There have only been four releases on Indonesia’s Hasana Editions so far, but that doesn’t mean the label is lacking ambition. “I think of it as a potential archive,” says owner Duto Hardono. “I think it could become a library of sorts, for the history of sound in the arts in Indonesia and the entire region.”
Judging by Hasana’s current catalog, Indonesian sound art is certainly worthy of documentation. From the rhythmic loops of Julian Abraham to the video game-inspired abstractions of Mahesa Almeida to the chamber operas of Nursalim Yadi Anugerah, the music Hardono has chosen for Hasana shows how wide-ranging and unpredictable experimental music can be in this vast country.
