Jeremy Grimshaw writes about music. His first book, The Island of Bali is Littered With Prayers (Mormon Artists Group), chronicled his study of Balinese gamelan music and his adventures bringing gamelan to Utah. His most recent book Draw a Straight Line and Follow It:The Sonic Life of La Monte Young (Oxford U. Press), examines the life and work of one of music's most influential and enigmatic figures.

Grimshaw is an Assistant Professor in the School of Music at Brigham Young University, the founding director of Gamelan Bintang Wahyu, and has written extensively for both academic and general audiences.

“The island of Bali is littered with prayers. Sacred words, yes, but also sacred objects.”
Jeremy Grimshaw, The Island of Bali Is Littered With Prayers

“Balinese women carefully arrange them inside baskets meticulously woven from palm fronds or pandanus petals or cut from banana leaves. They decorate them with frangipanis, hibiscus, lotus blossoms, clusters of oleander, and delicate rosettes made from rice dough, all arrayed in careful patterns and circling symmetries. Several times a day the women will prepare these, carefully arranging dozens of them in large trays and baskets. Then, wearing elegantly tailored blouses, ceremonial sashes, and sarongs, they distribute them throughout their homes, shops, and family shrines.”
Jeremy Grimshaw, The Island of Bali Is Littered With Prayers

Yeah, I've heard of that book. It's all right, I guess. :)

L. When I saw "The Island of Bali Is Littered With Prayers" come up on the Goodreads First Read giveaway list, I immediately thought: "Hey, I wonder if Dr. Grimshaw's seen this!" ...Only to check the author and laugh.

Can't wait to read it!
