Abstract: The study of film-music is a rapidly growing field transcending purely musicological studies and crossing into the disciplines of gender, film and anthropological studies. However, most studies on film music have been limited to that of Hollywood and European Cinema. In contrast, there is a striking dearth of studies on the music of Asian cinema and more specifically, what these musics tell us about the societies in which they are produced. This paper attempts to fill in part of this gap by exploring representations of the Thai Identity in Thai Movie Soundtracks within the past fifteen years. Through this study, I approach film-music not only as a language and marker of identity but also as a mode of meaning production and consumption which sheds light on the inner workings of the Thai cultural system, revealing the ?hidden codes? of unspoken rules and normative perceptions within the habitus of a Bangkok-based Thai-Middle class.
