Abstract

This research article explores the Thai Piphat and Khmer Pinpeat music cultures through the lens of their historical, political and musical traditions. Fieldwork and cross-cultural approaches revealed that the Thai Piphat and the Khmer Pinpeat share many similarities in terms of orchestral names, musical instrumentation, combination, and the form and function of the instruments emerging from a shared historical background. These similarities can be explained based on the analysis of the shared historical development, by the text or sound of the music that affects the ideas and forms of the melodies, the levels of sound, and the method of playing. Without being identical these findings reveal deep structural commonalities between the two traditions.
