About Bo LiSound designer | bolisound | USA | California
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, immediately I found 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 recognizations from different organizations all around the world. The film that I participated as sound supervisor received Gold medal at 2021 Student Academy Award in Animation Category. In music I got Denny Award Gold Statue which held by the Denver International Art and Technology Festival, the event reached around 1million view online. For sound design, I got Berlin International Sound Design Competition Third Prize, and Sound Academy Award Silver Medal in China. For audio technology and interactive media I got Chunhui Cup Crystal Statue which hold by the Chinese government education department. And of course, some other film festival awards.
Now, I work as a sound designer for Earsup Design, it is a company design sonic experience for theme park. My job is to design the content in a non-traditional sound environment. And I also work as a freelancer in the film industry, I had 1 feature called “Testament” released this month on Apple TV, iTunes, Google, Amazon.
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 to teach a sound course, the Introduction to Sound for Animation. In 2020 I was invited to join the Berlin International Sound Design Competition Jury Team, and in 2021 I am invited to join the beta tester team.
