Karma Sound Studios is the brainchild of top British music industry executive Chris Craker, a major figure in the international music industry for more than 30 years who has made Thailand his second home.
Disenchanted with the way the music business was heading, Chris, an award-winning music producer and musician, decided to move away from the mainstream and invest in an alternative creative venue in Thailand where artists and bands could develop their talents in an inspiring environment.
Karma has proved a perfect fit. Located on two rais of quiet woodland a short walk from Bang Saray beach, the studios offers cutting edge facilities that are now in such demand, they operate consistently at 90% capacity.
At the heart of the complex is the main studio. Impressive in size and scope, this is divided between a live studio for actual performances and a control room bristling with high-tech equipment, all imported from the UK. Karma has two additional studios, and plans are well underway for a fourth – a dedicated Video/TV studio from where TV shows and music videos can be shot all under one roof.
Visitors to the studios have included Placebo, Jamiroquai, Enter Shikari, Bullet For My Valentine, guitar legend Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, pop icon Jessie J and Young Guns. Bands from Australia, Russia, Denmark, Norway, New Zealand, Japan, Singapore and many from the UK have also recorded at the studio.
A special collection of 'Calm (a)' is the collaboration between One More Thing and Karma Sound studio, The concept of this collection the sharing the aspect of woven fabric pattern and sound design with a combination of Christian and Buddhist beliefs such as 'Eden Garden' and 'Four Lotus'.
