ISW is a series of Imaginary Sound Walk based on field recording materials.
In this first release, an imaginary journey was constructed based on field recordings taken from Central, Sheung Wan and Kwun Tong in Hong Kong.
This sound work was originally composed for Lee Chi Leung’s book “Room”. The journey is about a shamanistic search for the lost soul of the sick.
In shamanism, it is believed that people get sick because they lost their soul, and it is the shaman’s job to rescue their lost soul from the underworld.
