Since 1983, he has created more than 70 original compositions, all of which have been performed by groups in Indonesia, the U.S. and Europe. Ni Agung Warsiki, a dance teacher and performer in Indonesia and the U.S., has accompanied her husband to the U.S. in support of his current fellowship at College of the Holy Cross.
