These ornaments are often found in Hindu worship ceremonies. This shows that, aesthetically, Pejaten pottery cannot be separated from Hindu aesthetics, so it is interesting to study. The problem is how the implementation of Hindu aesthetics in Pejaten pottery works and how Hindu aesthetics is used as a strategy for preserving Hindu aesthetics in Pejaten pottery. This study aims to determine the basis for applying Hindu aesthetics as a strategy for preserving Pejaten pottery. This qualitative research took the location of Pejaten Village, Kediri District, Tabanan Regency, Bali.

The transformation of folklore as oral literature is often used for traditional performances. Its function is to strengthen the resilience of a local culture. This research aims to gain better knowledge about the transition process of traditional theatre performances to increase the awareness of the local community. The method used in this research uses a qualitative approach with an explanatory analytical approach and focuses on a multidisciplinary approach that comes from the theory of several branches of science. The results obtained from this study, namely the oral literature of the archipelago, have an important role in historical knowledge. The use of oral literature in stage performances makes a simple story more complex, one of which is manifested in the performing arts of the Dolalak dance. The conclusion that can be drawn is that the transformation of folklore as oral literature into stage performances provides a spiritual experience for the community because it is packaged interestingly through the dance movements. This article will contribute to the use of oral literature as a source of stories in traditional performances so that the results can be used to nurture and maintain the resilience of a local culture

Bongkel is the music of a farming community that developed in Gerduren Village, Purwajati, Banyumas, Central Java. This music only uses a four-tone slendro tuning. The current condition is that it is very difficult to find bongkel players; if there is no tracking of information about the history of bongkel, then in the future, it will be very difficult to find important information about bongkel. The purpose of this research is to trace and document the bongkel, from the side of its early history to its musicological review. The research method used is observation and interviews to explore oral sources. The use of oral sources is done because, until now have never received written data that specifically discusses bamboo music, especially in the Banyumas language. The interview focused on Kasmudi, Ibu Kunes, Maryadi Kresek and several other informants who were selected as sources, especially Kasmudi (a bongkel player) because he was the perpetrator the main witness. Kasmudi is the fourth generation of his entire family, which is a bongkel player on average. There are three types of data analyzed, including the history of the appearance of the bongkel, organology data, and musicological data. The grouping of data is done based on the three types of data, and the analysis is done by referring to the grouping of the three types of data. The results of this study found that the strongest characteristic of bongkel music is the imbal technique; besides that, bongkel is one of the musical instruments that became the forerunner to the development of angklung buncis, krumpyung, and calung music. The contribution of this research provides important information for the interest of Banyumas musical studies, especially for the development of bamboo music

In recent years, the interdisciplinary approach to art has gained popularity in the field of art studies. Numerous art studies transcend creative disciplines, allowing for the production of novel ideas and works. This study aims to understand the multidisciplinary art and design processes at the Institut Kesenian Jakarta. The data were acquired by observation and a review of the literature. Observations were made in order to collect field data about the work of art. This observation method was employed while visiting numerous exhibitions and performances at the Institut Kesenian Jakarta, and the literature was sourced by reading articles published in foreign magazines. The examination focuses on the difficulty inherent in diverse art practices. This study discovered that collaborative work increases the process of knowledge exchange between members and groups. As a result, an art ecosystem is developed from the standpoint of art creation and study. This research contributes to the discovery of new creative models or value chains and the provision of fundamental knowledge to develop a diverse art ecosystem. Art colleges can also contribute to interdisciplinary understanding and culture by fostering knowledge and abilities in art creation that are applicable across fields and are not constrained by the nomenclature of a single 'subject of arts'

In the aesthetic study, semiotic interpretation is an intellectual approach to deciphering the hidden meaning of an aesthetic achievement's taste. The study's goals include comprehending the artwork's structure, which necessitates an in-depth interpretation of the language by translating it into official symbols. This research method uses a linear formation sample with semantic attributes attached to the Kufic calligraphy of artworks. The findings reveal that the emergence of geometric lines in a linear composition has a decorative abstraction that may be used to argue that the artist intended to place it there and that this is a symbol of the cosmos and its existence. This study adds to our understanding of compositional insight in Arabic calligraphy as an expressive aesthetic expression that alludes to the text in the sense of meaning that lies underneath the direct meaning

This article examines the artistry of a composer named Aloysius Suwardi. This composer, who grew up in the Javanese gamelan music tradition, has produced musical compositions and created musical instruments as a means/medium to express it on the journey of his creativity. His works have been staged in various forums or world music festivals. The musical instruments he has created fill the laboratory spaces to create his musical compositions. Two musical ensembles that have been created are Gamelan Genta and Gamelan Planet Harmonic. These two musical instruments complement the many personal musical instruments he has created, such as the vibrander, tering, gerendang, and other musical instruments. Regarding the two ensembles, this article examines the aspects of the creation process. For example, how did Al Suwardi choose the materials used, how to make them, to how he determined the barrel system for these tools. In terms of compositing, this article examines how Al Suwardi started his work, his models of creation, and how he composes his works until they are declared final. The gragas and dridis creeds and Nunggak Semi's concept are the main topics in this composition creation model. Both creeds and concepts have ushered in the landscape of making Al Suwardi's musical compositions expand, from the gamelan tradition to more contemporary models of music creation

Culture is one of the foundations for the existence of Indonesia as a nation, as it is expressed in the second stanza of her national anthem. The government has taken an initiative to prioritize national character building, which places character education to realize the vision of national development. One of the efforts to visualize this Indonesian is constructed through a Bukalapak advertisement entitled “Barongsai Indonesia, Juara Hati Membangun Negeri,” which presented the Kong Ha Hong lion dance group and was published via Youtube. This study aims to see that the character values of the Indonesian nation can be constructed through digital media, more precisely through an advertisement. This research employed a qualitative approach with a constructivist paradigm that sees facts as unique and has a special meaning. In addition, the analysis used Thomas Albert Sebeok's visual semiotics to depict several similar classifications to different visual symbols. It was found that every advertisement scene contained both visual and audio messages related to the adaptation of the culture and character of the Indonesian. The contribution and novelty of this research in its construction of the deep meaning of an advertisement are that the conscience has played a major role in the process of cultural adaptation in which the national characters have been honed through the actual actions in the heart-mind, body, and spirit. This research suggested that the character of the Indonesian nation can be formed through cultural adaptation, as proven by the Kong Ha Hong lion dance
