SOUND IDEA

DestinAsian - - GOOD TO GO - —Daniel Har­tanto

After mak­ing a splash with the launch of its Hong Kong flag­ship store back in Fe­bru­ary, French sound tech­nol­ogy brand De­vialet has now teamed up with the Grand Hy­att Hong Kong’s Plateau Spa ( hongkong.grand.hy­att.com) to de­liver an hour-long sound ther­apy ses­sion un­like any other. Avail­able un­til March, Voy­age des Sens is a full-body mas­sage of long, flow­ing strokes chore­ographed to a sound­track recorded en­tirely in Hong Kong. Two high-end speak­ers placed on ei­ther side of the guest’s head emit in­fra-bass fre­quen­cies that reg­u­late the heart­beat and re­lease mus­cle ten­sion, though any­one will find the au­dio sto­ry­telling just as calm­ing and med­i­ta­tive. Crys­tal-clear am­bi­ent sounds take spa go­ers on a sen­sory jour­ney from Wan Chai's bustling streets—rep­re­sented by the flick­er­ing pulse of traf­fic lights—and the chat­ter of tra­di­tional tea­houses in Kowloon, to ocean waves and rain­drops fall­ing on trees in the New Ter­ri­to­ries. It’s an imag­i­na­tive au­ral trib­ute to Hong Kong’s ur­ban-ru­ral du­al­ity.
