Failed (Bhs. Cirebon), meaning start. Failure means the start of the Panji Panji mask dance. In Cirebon mask performances, Panji failure is a kind of door openers, as characteristic for the mastermind behind the mask to start dancing and the show itself. The song named kratagan which means surprising. In dance Panji Mask, Panji failure is a must, duration (long-short) was not the principal. Without opening failure, dance is not perfect, it is a fairly important part even as one character. Songs in failure (kratagan) is actually an acronym that also tetalu kratagan song. If kratagan in tetaluan duration can be very long, otherwise failure.
As a character, the song starts with a drum in unison on tens or galimer tone (tone gamelan blades fourth or fifth from right). Ditalu loud simultaneously. At first it looked pengeprak backwards, left and right as he watched the nayaga readiness for failure. He then led them:-yu ", and usually the nayaga answer-yes". Pengeprak immediately raised a hand held percussion instrument arm, then he quickly pulled it down and menghentakkannya to kecrek hanging on the side of the box. Instantly it is also sound: jreng! Making people shocked.
Failure of vibrant music, is a kind of operture which often makes people shocked. When the surge subsided, and gamelan played with the intensity of sound
not too loud, the music began to bring a calm atmosphere. Suddenly, pengeprak (kecrek drummer) plays tabuhnya tool. At first glance, his movements are similar to Igel-igelan (playful movements) that are able to make operture it feels very strange. Failure is a prefix of dance that is very rarely found in the genre of dance in West Java.
Both percussion instrument that ditarikannya alternately, left and right, sometimes both simultaneously. His movements imitating various dance movements such as race incek or father. Pengendang faithfully follow the movements of the percussion instrument, just as following the movement of a dancer or a puppet. Dance percussion instrument that continued until the failure reaches its peak rhythm. The song ended and stopped simultaneously follow the cue of pengeprak earlier.
The mastermind behind the mask can not start Manji if the failure has not been beaten. It is strongly associated with what they say, that the mask dance Panji regarded as icons baby is born. Therefore it is very logical if the failure is considered as a process from the beginning of the birth. Panji Mask is a symbol sangkan Paraning dumadi, Ian terusing dumadi origin. Origin and continuation of life. Sukarta, puppeteer from Bongas, Majalengka, describing the Panji as follows:
Sadurunge Risang tumandang Panji, iku diwiwiti swaraning ingkang gumerah sasanteré wasp. Wanda ambreg oranana sepisan kang curry. Jreng! Sagetakan kang Voice mawa angbata collapsed, yaiku sasmitané kekarepan, between the "yu" lan "yes". Ing kono, Risang Panji ing ana telenging sense, Aran Risang Manglayang Sukma. Ing rhythm watermelon wasp ana ana kenceng Alon, iku sasmitaning papadon sakloran ing, wong loro. Ing kono Risang Aran Risang Sukma Maya Bannerman, watermelon swaraning wasp stuck taya Alon rep Ian pungkasané Liren Babar linings, mung kang ana swarané Swasana stage. Ing kono Risang Risang Manikem Aran Banner. Artiné tepunging sakloran semen. Banyu kang Aran Tirta Marta Mahadi, for or Tirta Maya Kamandanu (banyu urip, ora kang Endah kinayangapa taxable). Ning kono Risang Sukma supreme court at the Mayan manggon sangang lawase quarterly.
Before Risang Panji appear (dancing), initiated a very thunderous percussion sound very loud. All that remains played no one. Jreng! In unison like the sound of collapsing walls, it is a symbol of the desire among yu (husband) and yes (wife). There, Risang Panji is in the midst of a sense of his name Risang Manglayang Sukma. That is why the rhythm of the gamelan is sometimes slow sometimes fast. That symbol of fusion between two beings. There Risang Panji Risang Sukma named Maya. That is why the sound of gamelan stop without rhythm is slow and eventually stop altogether, only the atmosphere on stage. There Risang Risang Manikem named Panji, it means meeting a husband and wife semen. Water is named Tirta Marta Mahadi, or Tirta Maya Kamandanu (water ineffable beauty of life). There Risang Sukma dwell in the palace of the great Maya (womb) of nine months duration).
Failure is a paradox ‗ no 'and ‗ there', ie a natural fill the void. Rapid rhythm of the music (deder) and the same drum is a symbol of the unification of the dualistic (opposite opposition). Dualistic dimension is a symbol of union of man ‖ and ‖ ‖ ‖ women (saresmi); establishment of conjugal love. Therefore, in this section there is never snarl (sort of a small shouts shouted to the rhythm of music). It's like two beings who were making love, away from the atmosphere of openness ‖ ‖ with the world around him, there was only busy nayaga hands and hearing the sound of music's surge. Nglagon snarl and new can be done after the failure is complete. This is a picture of human life Java or Indonesia, that something matters relating to sexuality that are closed, even sacred.
Marks the birth of a baby ‗ 'it is the sound of gong at the end of the failures that are immediately connected with ngertawara (sort of a short prologue).
Gégéré wong palace
Diwalik sumpingé
Surak nayaga kang Rame
Heup. . .
All nayaga replied:
Horsééééé. . .

Who would stir it? He was the baby who had been in a palace or a cave-womb (palace = womb). He was born into the world (diwalik sumpingé), and relatives of the baby was cheerful, joy. Ngertawara (Nayndra) was the symbol of all that. Symbol of joy and rejoicing, because a mother who took the actual birth process is in two critical situations. Both (mother and infant), or one of it, was on the verge between life or death. That is why when the mother and baby survived, the commotion around him.
