The Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) has launched a collection of four autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) videos which showcase the acoustic surroundings from the far-flung corners of the city.
Designed to awaken the viewer’s senses and evoke a sense of calm, the videos have been shot in a hyper-focused lens and the ASMR audio captures the day-to-day sounds of village and countryside life in Hong Kong.
The first video of Peng Chau follows a woman as she discovers the former industrial island, now home to a small artist community.
Her journey starts at the village pier with the sounds of a ferry horn, seagulls and the bells of bikes transition into the chimes of the local temple and distinctive rattle of the kau cim (shaking of fortune sticks).
It then ends as she explores the local art instillations and small businesses around the village.
