BAANK & TOMMY
Baank & Tommy is a creative musical improvisation project of two parts; guitar by Bank, guitarist of Thai psychedelic folk band Sasi and sound manipulation by Tommy Hanson of Yaan and Srirajah Rockers. By combining looping, live dub mixing, and surround sound techniques with a blend of jazz, drone, dub reggae, and minimalism, the duo surround listeners with their ever-evolving soundscapes. From deeply meditative ambience to full-melt psychedelic trances, the duo takes listeners on a self-reflective journey through vast worlds of sound drenched in analog nostalgia and digital uncertainty.
Baank & Tommy started when Kong, former bassist of the Thai rock band Goose and owner of Ku Bar on Phra Sumen Road, invited Bank to play guitar at the cocktail bar. Later, Tommy joined Bank and the two began to perform and recording weekly ambient sets there each Sunday. The pair has now extended the Baank & Tommy project into the studio, and continues to experiment with live sets that incorporate unique speaker configurations and a distinctly collaborative approach to performance.
