One of His Majesty King Bhumibol’s numerous fields in which he excels is music. His Majesty has always been an avid music lover, and has practiced classical music composition since he was very young. His Majesty’s musical skills have allowed him to excel at playing a variety of musical instruments. His Majesty’s musical talents received international recognition when The Academy for Music and Performing Arts of Vienna in Austria honored His Majesty the King with the Institute's 23rd Honorary Membership in 1964. His Majesty has composed 48 royal compositions, all of which have interesting messages. Some were composed to give moral support to the Thai people, some were meant to be entertaining, and some were to instill patriotism in the Thai people.
To celebrate and honor His Majesty’s excellence in music, Boon Rawd Brewery Company Limited and Singha Corporation Company Limited organized a press conference to announce the launch of the film project, “His Majesty the King's Royal Compositions: Music in the Heart of the People”. The press conference took place on Wednesday 22nd April 2015 at the Paragon Cineplex, Siam Paragon Shopping Complex
Nathawan Teepsuwan, corporate communications director of Boon Rawd Brewery who spoke at the press conference about the background of the project, was joined by famous film directors Nonzee Nimibutr, Wallop Prasopphol, Parkpoom Wongpoom, and Yongyut Thongkongthun. Each of them talked about their films which were based on inspirations from the royal compositions. Guests also had a chance to listen to His Majesty’s royal composition “Sai Fon,” sung by a legendary Thai singer Anchalee Jongkadeekij, and “Yim Su” sung by Getsunova.
Nathawan Teepsuwan, corporate communications director of Boon Rawd Brewery, said the current film project is a continuation of last year’s media production project initiated to celebrate His Majesty’s excellence in music and royal composition. The purpose is to promote His Majesty’s royal compositions to the general public through films. Not only will the people appreciate the beauty of the royal composition’s music but they will also receive the valuable messages from His Majesty’s royal compositions. Most of all, the films in this project serve to inspire people, especially the younger generation, to do good deeds for the society.
“This past year, Boon Rawd Brewery Co. Ltd. had the opportunity to honor His Majesty the King’s great musical talents through documentaries and a music camp for youth. The current film project, ‘His Majesty the King's Royal Compositions: Music in the Heart of the People,’ features four short films, totaling 130 minutes, produced by Thailand’s leading directors. The story of each film is inspired by His Majesty’s royal compositions.”
Last year, Boon Rawd Brewery and Singha Corporation organized a project to celebrate His Majesty’s excellence in music by producing the television documentary "Kitaracha," a series of 10 short television clips focusing on the inspiration His Majesty’s royal compositions had on those in the music industry, singers, and those who have worked with His Majesty in the music field.
"Kitaracha" also featured the Pro Musica Junior Camp, where the aim was to provide talented youth with the proper training in classical music through royal composition by renowned music instructors from the Faculty of Music, Silpakorn University, and later have them performed at the “Pro Musica Junior Concert” at the Thewarat Sapharom Hall, Phaya Thai Palace, which was a great success.
The four films in this project include “The Singers,” directed by Nonzee Nimibutr, inspired by the song “Chata Cheewit,” sung by Neeranuch Pattamasut and Thanida Thamwimon (Da Endorphin); “Om Yim,” directed by Wallop Prasopphol, inspired by the song “Yim Su,” sung by Prakarn Raiva from Getsunova; “It Rains at Huay Kha Khaeng,” directed by Parkpoom Wongpoom, inspired by the song “Sai Fon,” sung by Anchalee Jongkadeekij; and “Dao,” directed by Yongyut Thongkongthun, inspired by the song “Kwarm Fun Un Soong Sood,” sung by Saharat Sangkapricha and Koranis Laosubinprasert.
