An unusual artist, to say the least––and ultimately just as intriguing––making music that horror/suspense filmmakers will want to check out. Kawin Kornthong (based in Bangkok, Thailand) specializes in soothing, languidly paced songs with extended instrumental breaks (full of piano, saxophone, organ) that veer into an ambient music realm. And the artist’s uniquely breathy, unaccented voice has a gift for effortlessly nailing every note, high or low––except when things go a wee bit sour and, perhaps, who knows, sinister...? The best moments are when incongruous elements somehow achieve their own logic and blend “perfectly,” at least in their own very cool musical universe.
