Hồ - A Sonic Expedition to Viet nam

Creating Hồ has been a full-of-fun journey and a very stimulating project. Ho is an imaginary sonic expedition to Vietnam, developed with Blender3D ( and plenty of adventures and drama. Although it is immersed in a three-dimensional visual environment, it has a focus on sound. In Hồ, the performer, sound artist or casual visitor, becomes ‘the captain of a ship,’ who controls a sound-wheel interface inspired by maritime navigation. While 'navigating', he/she leads listeners to an aural journey with critical stops at specific locations. These scenes were my personal imaginary reconstruction of a number of sketchy stories with unique sound interest and located in Vietnam. Audiovisual scenarios vary from sailing across the Hanoi bay, experiencing a rickshaw trip where one needs to find his/er way out of a sonic-maze, experiencing a zebra crossing in a jungle of cars and mopeds, or testing food in a restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City, including a battle with a giant squid... Hồ provides a new contextualisation for the concept of navigation through sound and identifies new research and creative questions arising, which may be solved with creative practice.
