Pisitakun is from Bangkok, Thailand. He started making visual arts and music in 2014 and is interested in music in different media environments. He uses a variety of inspirations in his songs, such as historical events, synthetic sounds, and musical instruments. In 2016, the album "Black Country" began to be prepared. In this album, Pisitakun is talking about a country full of dialogues between dark voices.
As Thai history currently unfolds under martial law following the military coup d’état on 22 May 2014 – the thirteenth since the end of the absolute monarchy in 1932 – Pisitakun’s practice represents a decisive break from many of his Thai peers: he questions fundamental and increasingly universal values without merely decrying the fact of corruption or offering neat palliatives.
Pisitakun's works are based on political speculation and the external and internal frustrations artists are subject to.
Pisitakun's new album—inspired by the death of his father—mixes pounding techno, traditional Thai instruments and sounds of machinery and hardware recorded in a hospital room.

With strange sounds that feel a bit like a militant war trip on psychedelic drugs Pisitakun sets out a rhythmic scene that kept my eyes glued to the speakers. I had to use some soap to get them loose, so beware! Good stuff!" YEAH I KNOW IT SUCKS read more
