Bio of Performers
Nakarin Teerapenun Bio
When I was a child, I had learning difficulties and did not excel in school except in arts and music. As a result, I decided to apply to an art college and later to pursue fine arts at university level. While in college, I also formed a band with my brother and some friends, and we became known as T-Bone, a reggae and ska band. At around the same time I also discovered jazz music and became obsessed with the improvisation aspect of it. I later decided to pursue music instead of art and I have not looked back since. Despite being in a reggae band, I always find ways to weave jazzy elements into whatever I play.
A few years later, I started my own experimentation with jazz by forming a jazz band called Stone Head. I like to try and find different sounds and play around with it, seeing where it will take me, which I find very stimulating and exciting. As my journey into sound continued, I formed another band called “Killjoy”, this time delving deeper into experimentations. My most memorable experiences playing live was when I played free improvisation with Arto Lindsay at Lincoln Center in New York, with Eyal Maoz in Bangkok, and jazz with John Stowell, also in Bangkok. T-Bone also played at Glastonbury twice, and once at Womad in Singapore. Currently, I regularly perform free improvisation gigs around Bangkok as Killjoy, and go on tour around Thailand with T-Bone.
Vick Low Bio
Vick Low is an electronic musician and sound designer, who graduated from Lasalle College of the Arts in 2015 with a BA(Hons) in Music Technology. He creates soundscapes and music through the manipulation of sound and music with contemporary techniques. His works are mainly influenced by ambient and minimalist musicians, such as Brian Eno and Ryuichi Sakamoto.
He is also a classically trained cellist, and he has been incorporating the cello in his works. Through his education in Lasalle, he learnt to process the sounds from his cello to broaden the spectrum of sounds he can create, and at the same time, equipping him with more tools to build and design his sounds.
After graduating, he started doing sound design for theatre and has worked on productions such as Navodaya, a dance theatre production by Shantha Ratii Initiatives, The Good Farmer(Performance Tour 2018) by TheatreWorks, A Dream Under the Southern Bough – The Beginning by Toy Factory Productions for SIFA 2018 and PLAYtime! The Dragon’s Dentist, an immersive theatre production for children, by Esplanade Theatre in 2019.
He is currently working closely with Little Creatures, an initiative consisting of artists who are dedicated to creating a space for children to learn through sounds and sonic objects. Their works often explore how children react and respond to the different sounds that they hear.
As a sound designer and musician, he is interested in how people and children are affected by sounds and how it enhances their theatre experience. He is also intrigued to learn about how different artists use sounds, music and technology in their art to enrich the audience experience.
