about

Welcome to 'Golden Bangkok Guest', my 70+ minute serenade to Bangkok and Laos!

Equal parts beat-tape and full on production, this is a comprehensive weaving of recordings and samples collected over around 2 years of back and forths between Bangkok and Laos, and many diversions therein. Train rides, street processions, vinyl, cassettes, chants, monks, locals, radio transmissions, boat cruises, wildlife, insects and stray dogs, temples and drums with surfaces measuring at least 6 feet...

I took time to filter these sounds through my head and then through my hands, and 'Golden Bangkok Guest' is what I made. This is a humid and hissing trek through the jungle, a close and warm chug down the river, a slow tracking shot through the village, a piercing and chaotic wrestle through the city and a calm but invigorating road trip up and down the mountain. From Bangkok to Udon to Vientiane to Luang Prabang and all manner of side-spots and diversions, I truly hope you enjoy this journey with me.

All there remains for me to do now is to sweep up, soothe my sunburn and feed my fearful papaya salad addiction.
Catch you next pii-mai.
Sok dee!

–••– Dedicated with all my love to Passa Paa, always –••–
