Hear a sonic spectrum from upcountry to urban this Sunday at Museum Siam, where the place is brewing on the subject of sound and music.
Ethnomusicologist Anant Narkkong will wield traditional instruments while Michael Edwards will deploy a sax and computer at a live companion performance to the museum’s As((earn))n exhibition of Southeast Asian soundscapes.
The live performance will be mirrored by an outdoor screening of “Y/our Music,” a visually arresting tour of Thailand’s socio-political history “from rice field to leftfield.”
Eight months after the film premiered at the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, the award-winning film by Waraluck Hiranswettawat Every and David Reeve remains little-shown in Thailand, apart from a run at Lido earlier this year. Kick off your shoes and enjoy the film under the night sky. It will be preceded by a discussion with Waraluck.
