I love this, it's utterly beautiful. Evocative of old floorboards creaking, a slow motion film clip of a glass-bead necklace coming unstrung, an old music box gone slightly askew...

And though these are stringed instuments, not percussion and gongs, it strikes me as a certain kind of American gamelan (javanese court style, not Balinese).

This is going on Ye Olde iPod, for sure.
