The non-western ringer on prepared piano ear is designed to stimulate the gamelan of Indonesia. The term "Gamelan" is used to describe the traditional set of the music of Indonesia (Java and Bali). This type of music is played with instruments such as hammers and a set of hand played drums called kendhang.
