JUST TRY... WITH SAUN SANTIPREECHA


SAUN SANTIPREECHA is a composer and sound artist from Thailand whose work often explores the inescapable interiority of experience and those singular moments which cast a shadow across the plain of one’s existence, examining and questioning this from a multitude of angles. On a thematic level, these inquiries resonate outwards towards exploring the relationship between ourselves and nature through technology, creating a sonic womb within which opposites, reflections and refractions bounce back and forth, often juxtaposing moments in time to create an impression of timelessness and allowing the audience to engage in both internal and external dialogue. Aside from his solo work, he often collaborates with artists from various fields including filmmakers, singer-songwriters, fashion designers and writers.


What stands out to you as being the piece of music that has changed the game for the industry?

The first piece that comes to mind is Stockhausen’s Gesang der Jünglinge from 1955-56 but of course there are more recent examples. I think Nine Inch Nails really did—The Downward Spiral.

You are a game changer yourself... how do you want to change the game with YOUR music?

I tend to think of it more as finding a new way to investigate life through the medium. I’m getting closer to realizing a new process through which I can explore and ask questions or pose a dialogue with the audience.

How are you putting together your next project?

Right this moment I’ve started working on a diptych of pieces. They are the first in my exploration of framing the work with the human voice and with these three monosyllabic words which bend, distort and transform.

Who are you collaborating with?

I have several collaborators I work with closely in other genres and fields. I’ve arranged and produced Luc Trahand’s song Polarity which will be coming out soon. I’m working with Emily Daccarett on some new songs for her solo project. I’m constantly chatting with filmmaker Guy Longstreet about his new projects.

Who are you giving credit to when it comes to how this upcoming music is being made?

Most of my solo work I create myself in the studio. Occasionally I’ll bring in some musicians to perform but in this case, it’s just me.

Biggest lesson so far this year that you are taking into this summer?!

Always find the time to do what you love and what drives you.

What is something EPIC you're doing this summer to contribute to your art?

I’ve returned to visual art which was my first love artistically so it’s been a really moving and epic process returning to it now. It has definitely changed how I see and create music.

You are just EPIC! Give us everything we need to keep up!

Leave our audience a word or phrase on how they could live their best lives too!

Samuel Beckett’s famous phrase rings ever true and is very close to my heart: Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail Again. Fail better.


Fun Fact about Saun Santipreecha: Hmm fun fact about me and music: I was a priest in the choir of priests in a production of Mozart's The Magic Flute when I was sixteen.
