Art music, in Indonesia, is used for identify the written music that connected to Western classical music. The Western music have been affected Indonesia since the 16 th century, through: the dissemination of religion, trading activities, and politics. These influences made the emerge of art music composers in Indonesia. It started with Ki Hadjar Dewantara, Amir Pasaribu, and then Trisutji Kamal, Jaya Suprana, Yazeed Djamin, Marusya Nainggolan, and now, Ananda Sukarlan. Their composotitions were made by the Western music composition technique, but had Indonesian traditional music element in it. One of the Sukarlan�s composition for marimba, guitar, and two pianos, titled: The Drupadi Trilogy, consist of Western element as well as Indonesian traditional music element. Even though they have likeness with others, they also have the differences and uniqueness. Therefore, by applying musicological and sociological study of art approaches, I conduct a deeper research to find its corellation with the habitus and field of the composer, the interrelation between the Indonesian and Western element inside the compositions, and how they work as the composer�s identity
