// 200b Entry //
An experimental outfit hailing from Bangkok since 2006. He has undergone several name changes throughout the years. After being inspired by his introduction to Noise, he has decided to create and perform it by himself.
Inspired by Sonic Youth and artists alike, the 1996-born started to discover more new sounds on his guitar. His free improvisation is the key element to forge his way to making noise.
Arvind Ganga is a guitar player from Den Haag, the Netherlands. He takes a physical approach to guitar playing, employing objects and extended techniques to explore new sonic possibilities. His music draws from influences as diverse as noise and drones, North Indian ragas, experimental rock, and everyday sounds. With free improvisation he brings these together into an intense, loosely structured, chaotic mesh that is bathing in the rays of a deep red sun. Ethereal noise with a punk-improv attitude. Arvind plays solo, improvises with like-minded musicians, and is active in music/dance improvisation. His music took him to play squats, galleries, clubs and festivals from Poland to Portugal, England to Slovenia, Turkey, Chile and Perú.
Harsh Noise Wall from Bangkok, Thailand, The chemical resistance to all traditional form with an extreme non-aesthetic work of art. His static distorted sound spectrum can create the indetermined subtlety within.
Born in Japan in 1969, Kota Taki learned classical piano for 10 years, starting in 1974 at the age of 5. He began composing in 1984 and has been writing original songs since then. In 1998, he signed an exclusive artist contract with Victor Entertainment (Japan), marking a major debut. He has been embarking on a solo career since 2003 and has performed "Dub drawing space musical improvisation" about 1,500 times all over Japan. He immigrated to Thailand in 2011 and has been playing music here since 2013.
Besides being known as the guitarist/bandleader of Hope the Flowers, Narongrit has a solo project which goes by his own name. Unlike his main band, he does a wide range of musical and non-musical experiments.
