Music for Siam featuring Rival Consoles, Hatis Noit, Daniel Brandt, Midori Hirano and Douglas Dare

14.12  2023


Today we share Music for Siam — a new Erased Tapes compilation featuring original music by Rival Consoles, Hatis Noit, Daniel Brandt, Midori Hirano and Douglas DareThe project was initiated in collaboration with MSCTY's Nick Luscombe and James Greer, and the resulting pieces highlight how much sonic richness this sweltering, urban organ has to explore. For the past four years, these pieces were exclusively accessible to only those who visited these sites with a pair of headphones and the official project app, until now.

“It’s very exciting to finally be able to share these pieces with the world. Quite some time has passed since we embarked on this label excursion to generate site-specific works, and the world has changed in many ways. Which only makes one appreciate these recordings even more, as they allow us to take our listeners on a truly unique sonic journey to a place that we’ll never forget.”Robert Raths, Erased Tapes

“Featuring field recordings made at the 5 locations we explored with our friends at Erased Tapes, Bangkok Memory Phase takes a sideways cross-sectional glance at the city through its organic sound. In Bangkok, the slowly weaving and meandering Chao Phraya River is never far away, but then, neither are the vital voices that thrive around it: chanting at Wat Arun, the market generator hum of Tha Tian, the traffic, the bridges, monuments, parks, and bustle of the ornate station offering slow trains north, and haircuts at the side of the tracks.”James Greer, MSCTY
