'dok dat dap dap by Hsu Wailun & So Laiping attempts to create a book which is accessible to the visually impaired, the hearing-impaired, and everyone else. Hsu and So experiment with the possibility of recalling people’s listening experiences when in the rain, using different senses. Rain scenes from 17 films are portrayed using visual signs, onomatopoeia, and the sense of touch in the pocket book.

"pocket book of sound” is a series of three books published by soundpocket in 2021. With each book conceived by an artist or group, their observations and thoughts on how they perceive sounds, and on how they imagine that others perceive sounds, are presented in the form of books to be experienced. These non-digital, handy, and accessible books are to be circulated amongst all active listeners (to-be), who are curious to experience different and fun ways of reading sounds.'
