Music is being studied related to either its impact on the psychological interaction or cognitive process behind it. These examinations bring out music's coordination to numerous disciplines including neuroscience. A few past examinations exhibited the contrast among musicians and non-musicians regarding brain structure and brain activity. The current investigation exhibited the diverse brain activation while musicians tuned in to music with regards to their musical experiences utilizing microstate classes method analysis. The investigation intended to determine electroencephalography microstate changes in Karawitan musicians' brain while tuning in to Gendhing Lancaran. Applying the electroencephalography microstate investigation of Karawitan musicians, the occurrence parameters was computed for four microstate classes (A, B, C, and D). Microstate properties were compared among subjects and correlated to Gendhing Lancaran perception. The present results revealed that Karawitan musicians' brain were characterized by microstate classes with the increased prominence of classes A, B, and D, but decreased prominence of classes C while tuning in to Gendhing Lancaran. Our finding is the first study to identify the typical microstate characteristics of the Karawitan musician’s brains while tuning in to Gendhing Lancaran by using the microstate segmentaion method.
