Autobiography of I Gusti Sudarsana



I Gusti Sudarsana was born in Sedang on January 8, 1969. I am a son of pair between Gusti Ngurah Meriam and Ni Gusti ayu Rai Leked. I started to learn for playing musical instruments since I was five years old, those instruments were Tingklik (traditional music instrument) and flute which taught by my uncle namely I Gusti Ketut Tantra and learned by myself through listening music. Sometimes, I got chance to play traditional music (gamelan) to complete the ritual ceremony. By eight years old, I entered state of SLB (extraordinary school for person with visual impairments) Driaraba in Serma Gede street No. 11 Sanglah, Denpasar. At that time, I learned music in whole theoretically at school but most of the practices was done in my hostel with some kinds of instruments provided, for example; gamelan (traditional orchestra), Kulintang, Bamboo Angklung and acoustic guitar. The blind lines to be a great problem for me in playing music, I just learn music autodidact while by listening and that why I hold the guitar from the top. It happened in 1979, when I was in the first grade. Three months later, I could play 5 keys which were taught by my friend. He had better vision than me, his name is Merta. He also taught me to hold guitar correctly. I faced another problem while I played Gangsa and Gamelan (traditional music instruments) because the instruments should be closed from below but I closed it from above. Then, I got better understanding to play those instruments when I was already in third grade and it helped by Mr. Pande Trika. In addition, I started to learn for playing gamelan since I was in kinder garden and I already had music group since I was in the third grade for playing melody. In the ninth grade, I played organ instrument to substitute one of the player which had graduated. On the sixth until eighth grade, I joined to play kulintang in Sanur Village Hotel. On June, 11, 1988, I graduated from Junior High school and few days later on June, 16, 1988, I started to work in Legian Beach Hotel with Made Kandra as rindik and pertuni player until 1992.

Biografi I Gusti Sudarsana

I Gusti Sudarsana lahir di Sedang pada tangagl 8JANUARI 1969. Dia  merupakan anak dari pasangan Gusti Ngurah Meriam dan Ni Gusti Ayu Rai Leked. Pada umur 5 tahun, dia sudah mulai belajar bermain music seperti tingklik, suling yang diajarkan oleh paman saya sendiri yaitu I Gusti Ketut Tantra dan dengan cara mendengarkan sendiri. Sesekali, pada usia 8 tahun, saya diberi kesempatan memainka gamelan ( alat music) ketika ada upacara adata. Ketika berumur 8 tahun, saya bersekolah di sekolah luar biasa (SLB)  negeri Driaraba Jalan Serma Gede nomor 11 di daerah Sanglah Denpasar. Pada saat itulah saya tahu tentang music dan belajar teorinya di sekolah tetapi prakteknya lebih banyak belajar sendiri di asrama dengan peralatan yang tersedia seperti gamelan, kulintang, angklung bamboo serta akustik gitar yang ada di asrama putra. Nah, karena saya hanyatahu suara,  maka saya memegang stang gitar dari atas, hal ini terjadi tahun 1979 ketika saya masih kelas 1. 3 bulan kemudian, saya bisa 5 kunci yang diajarkan oleh salah satu teman yang memiliki pnglihatan lebih baik daripada saya, namanya adalah Merta. Sejak saat itulah saya mulai belajr memegang gitar dari bawah. Sedangkan untuk gamelan dan gangsa saya juga salah dimana seharusnya menutup dari bawah tetapi saya mentup dari atas. Setelah kelas 3, saya akhirnya lebih paham berkat bantuan dari Bapak Pande Trika. Unttuk kesenian gamelan, saya sudah ikut belajar dari Tk dan mulai punya group ketika kelas 3 SD sampai kelas 8 dengan memainkan melodi danketikakelas 9 saya main organ karena pemainnya tamat. Saat duduk di kelas 6 sampai 8, saya ikut bermain kulintang mengisi acara di hitel Filid sanur. Pada tanggal 11 / 6 / 1988, saya tamat SMP yang selanjutnya pada tanggal 16/6 1988, saya mulai bekerja di Legian Beach Hotel bersama I Made Kandra sebagai penabuh rindik dan pertuni sampai thaun 1992. Sedangkan untuk menciptakan lagu, saya sudah mulai dari kelas 7.
