    Hear her roar!

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 12/04/2018

    » Katy Perry, pixie-haired and ever ebullient, roared through her second appearance in Bangkok on Tuesday night with professionalism, humour and ease. This pop-spectacle is as much a visual experience as it is an aural one -- in fact, the visual overwhelmed our attention for the most parts of the 120-minute gig. The stage -- and wardrobe -- dripped with red at one point, shimmered with silver at another, and Perry's team deployed a full arsenal of wacky props, girlish delight and zany sight gags. We even had a fart joke at one point, perhaps the first I ever heard live on the stage from Impact Arena. Perry's appeal cuts a broad swathe across the demographic, and we had a rainbow of humanity thronging the hall: office types, teenagers, party animals, hipsters, Cosplay queens, the LGBT camp, celebrities, people who think they're celebrities, girls in candy-coloured wigs, parents and children -- I mean, first-graders and stuff, lots of them in fact, arriving in cheerful anticipation and looking tired when the proceedings advanced past 11pm. In all, it looked like a cross section between the crowd at a Madonna gig and Disney On Ice. Such is the strange pull of Perry.

    Life, John Clewley, Published on 21/03/2017

    » The headlines in the media have been dominated by politics for what seems like an age but suddenly changed a couple of days ago when the sad news that the "King of Rock'n'Roll" Chuck Berry had died at his Missouri home. He was 90 years old and, supported by some of his children, had just recorded his first studio album for 38 years; the album, simply called Chuck will be released later this year.

    Breaking the bloody iceberg

    Life, Kaona Pongpipat, Published on 16/07/2015

    » Teerawat Mulvilai knows he's being watched onstage. In his case specifically, it is with extreme scrutiny, a sense of wonder and perplexity. Standing very still seems just as significant as when he moves. He's done it many times before, namely in the first two instalments of his solo performance in Satapana (Establishment), which were Red Tank followed by Iceberg, last year.

    Uploading the Korean dream

    Life, Onsiri Pravattiyagul, Published on 27/03/2015

    » Nathamon "Nutty" Kongjak was only seven minutes late, but she apologised profusely, to the point of mutual embarrassment. For a net idol with 3 million followers, and a budding artist who has just released an album in Korea, Power Of Nutty, there's something disarming about Nathamon, especially when the general consensus of net idols and K-pop stars tends to lean on the negative side.

    The sound effect

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 08/09/2017

    » With the number of independent films being made and an increasing number of recording artists taking the leap into the unknown without a label, knowledge about sound and how and where to best capture it becomes key. Luckily you're in the right country. Thailand is a production hub for Southeast Asia when it comes to film and now even more so, music. So, if you've written music for a video, a movie, a music album or you've got this song in your head that you always dreamed of recording... where do you go to turn such far-fetched notes into reality? You could of course do it yourself and start off at home! All you'd need is a condenser mic, a laptop and a few other bits of hardware (e.g. an audio interface, headphones, a MIDI keyboard) and software (Logic Pro or Ableton are some of many) and you'd be well on your way. Or you could go to the professionals, who would have all the gear at your disposal as well as the know-how to see your visions turn into reality. We decided to investigate some of the city's existing recording studios to see what they have to offer in the way of making music.
