Hosoo (호수, means ‘lake’ and ‘room number’ in Korean) is the project started by two sound artists in Seoul, South Korea. According to the press release, they have been searching and waiting for sounds having sense of place, soundscapes to stay in, from different perspectives.
Mist is the new album which is out now via Los Angeles based label LINE; the title and concept of the album were loosely inspired by a novel that reflects highly similar imaginary places. It is composed of excerpts from improvised sessions, recorded in 2018-2019. Small percussions, a bamboo flute, a portable recorder, a radio, and guitars were played, sampled and processed over and over during improvisation.
