Program note: A.S. is part of the Bangkok landscapes series I started to write after my trip to Thailand in August 2018. A.S. is the second piece in this series. Rather than depicting landscapes of the city, the piece transcribes impressions I had of some neighborhoods. The duality of the city emerges in A.S. between the exaltation of the city and its juxtaposition with the peacefulness of its numerous temples and traditions.
