Most of the members of the Southbank Gamelan Players studied in Java or the island of Bali. The group often collaborates with great figures of Southeast-Asian performing art, dancers or puppeteers, as well as with artists seeking new directions, such as Italian composer Salvatore Sciarrino, Icelandic singer-songwriter Björk, and English composer Alec Roth.

One of today’s most important Javanese composers and musicians, Rahayu Supanggah was artist in residence at London’s Southbank Centre between 2006–2009. It was during this period that the idea of an extensive composition for a gamelan ensemble and electronics arose, and it was eventually premiered in 2009 with the participation of Plaid – the name under which two artists, Andy Turner and Ed Handley work together – and the Southbank Gamelan Players.
