this past weekend, the thai music scene lost three beloved artists; molam phonsak songsaeng, string star ot khiribun, and classical fusion musician bruce gaston. the bangkok-based american composer/multi-intrumentalist gaston was a chula professor, co-founder with bunyong ketkhong of the ensemble fong naam, and active in the thai film industry as a composer of incidental music. he passed away sunday, october 17th at the age of 74. today's 1987 cassette finds him paired with violinist takako nishizaki, accompanying her primarily on piano but also with a range of both electronic and thai classical instruments. for more information, refer to the fairly extensive english-language liner notes which are included with the download. enjoy!
