About Bo Li

Sound designer | bolisound | USA | California

Hi, I am Bo. I started my journey as a string instrument (Erhu) performer. Then when I was around 12 years old, I had a chance to visit a recording facility, and I immediately found my interest in the audio experience. 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, I received recognition from different organizations worldwide for my personal projects. The film I participated in as a sound supervisor received the Gold medal in the 2021 Student Academy Award in Animation Category. In music, I was awarded Denny Award Gold Statue at the Denver International Art and Technology Festival. The event reached around 0.65 million views online. For sound design, I got the Berlin International Sound Design Competition Third Prize for sound design 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’s education department. And, of course, some other film festival awards from my collaboration projects.

I am working as a freelancer in the Film/ TV industry. The project I participated in as a sound designer is now public on platforms like Apple TV, iTunes, Google, Amazon, etc. Last year I worked as a sound designer for EarsUp Sound Design. This company designs sonic experiences for world-class theme parks like Warner Bros. World, UAD, and Universal studio, Japan.

As for institutional and field service, I was invited as a sound design visiting artist for the Animation program at Arizona State University in 2021. It was successful. Then I got an offer from Arizona State University as a Clinical Assistant Professor, Sound for Animation. In 2023, the Chinese education group AAE and ACG reached out to me and offered me a position – as a sound class tutor. In 2022 I was invited to join the Berlin International Sound Design Competition Jury Team as a distinguished judge. The same year, I was invited as the judge for the China Advertising Golden Lion Award.

I am interested in exchanging ideas with you regarding sound and music, soundware, theater, games, etc. hit me with any questions!
