The Democracy Monument serves to commemorate the 1932 coup which resulted in Siam’s first constitution and the end of absolute monarchy. As with so many of Bangkok’s significant buildings, it was designed by an Italian - Corrado Feroci.
The monument is the main focal point of the grand European-style Ratchadamnoen Klang boulevard, and its four wings symbolize the Thai armed forces, while golden offering bowls represent the constitution itself. While most of the time, the monument is surrounded by busy traffic, the monument has remained an important site for political uprisings to rally around since it was built in 1932.
Nannue Tipitier is a Thai electronic music composer and producer based in Bangkok.
His debut album “Nannue Tipitier” released in 2002 was a fresh sound and
something different to the ears back then for the Thai music scene. His experimental sounds and ambient techno works have made Nannue Tipitier familiar name in the local Thai underground electronic music sphere over the years, as he continued to work with wellknown local artists and record labels such as May-T ModernDog, DJ Suharit, Futon, Gene Kasidit, TuanArmy, and So:: On Label.
Nannue Tipitier collaborated with Console for a Goethe Institute Global’s “Die AsiaPazifische Platte: The Asian-Pacific Plate: Collaborations in Electronic Music project" in 2007 and co-produced a track with Acid Pauli for the Get Lost V Compilation in 2012, released by Damian Lazarus's Crosstown Rebels Label. He was also featured in compilations with RouteR and Japan’s Volvox Records alongside ZK and other international artists.
Nannue Tipitier now extends his experimental sounds on to film scoring, having produced original soundtracks in collaboration with the Thai director Nontawat Numbenchapol for the films GAZE & HEAR (2011), Boundary (2013), BY THE RIVER (2013), and most recently Soil Without Land (2019).
