This research ontologically elaborates on categories of artistic on musical composition of karawitan music, characterized by particular styles. This writing is intended to describe musical forms in everyday life in Javanese music culture. This elaboration was done by identifying and taking apart the components of any term and musical concept as a manifestation of the cultural statements. The outcome of this explanation is a new conception and perception of artistic categories related to the medium and musical construction. In new creations of karawitan music, one can distinguish a new karawitan with classic/traditional nuances, another with popular nuances, with reinterpretation, and with an experimental or explorative nature. This writing seeks to characterize a generic idea generalized from particular instances of karawitan music.
