I am Bo, I start my journey with music, I was a string instrument performer. Then when I was around 12 years old, I had a chance to visit a recording facility, and immediately I found an interest in sound, then I did my bachelor's degree in recording arts.
Then I got an offer with 3 years full scholarship from CalArts. In my early career, very luckily, I received some recognition from different organizations all around the world for my personal projects. The film that I participated in as a sound supervisor received the Gold medal in the 2021 Student Academy Award in Animation Category. In music I got Denny Award Gold Statue which was held by the Denver International Art and Technology Festival, the event reached around 0.75 million views online. For sound design, I got Berlin International Sound Design Competition Third Prize and the Sound Academy Award Silver Medal in China. For audio technology and interactive media, I got Chunhui Cup Crystal Statue which holds by the Chinese government education department. And of course, some other film festival awards from my collabration projects.
Now, I work as a sound designer for EarsUp Sound Design, it is a company that design sonic experience for world-class theme park like Warner Bros. World, UAD, Universal studio, Japan, etc. My job is to design the content in a non-traditional sound environment. And I also work as a freelancer in the film industry, my work has been released on Apple TV, iTunes, Google, Amazon, etc.
As for institutional service, last year, I was invited as a sound design visiting artist for the Animation program at Arizona State University. It was successful, then I got an offer from Arizona State University as a Clinical Assistant Professor, Sound for Animation. In 2022 I was invited to join the Berlin International Sound Design Competition Jury Team as a distinguished judge.
I am interested to exchange ideas with you regard to – Sound and music, soundware, theater, games, etc… hit me with any questions you may have!
