Y/OUR MUSIC

 

It received production funds from AND (Asian Network of Documentary) FUND, Busan and the
distribution fund from the Thailand Ministry of Culture. It is a Thailand/UK co-production highlighting contemporary musical expression in Thailand.

Y/OUR MUSIC immerses itself in Thai musical genres, from the traditional to labor songs, and from classical pop to urban indie, spanning generations and locales. From the noisy streets of Bangkok to the arid fields of Isan, nine musicians reveal the juxtaposing environments that influence their sounds: the hands that play traditional instruments amid red dust clouds; the work songs hummed among rice awaiting harvest; and the indie music born of concrete basements - all create a melodious ecosystem that provides a stimulating sensory journey. Yet while inhabiting very different worlds, the musicians are linked by the same passion to bring their artistic aspirations to the fore and survive outside the mainstream.
