The Story of Ha Noi
The Perform View artwork flow’s from the story of Hoan Kiem Lake,
or The Lake of the Restored Sword, in the center of Hanoi’s Old Quarter.
The story says a fisherman once came across a large shiny blade
while casting his net in the lake and gifted it to a rebel leader named Lê Lợi.
The sword gave Lê Lợi and his army immense strength, enabling them to defeat their enemies.​

Ha Noi 的故事
音源表演界面中的图片来自 Hoan Kiem Lake 的故事,
他撒网将其捞起,并送给了一位名叫 Lê Lợi 的叛军领袖。
利剑使得 Lê Lợi 的军队实力大增,拥有了战胜敌人的强大能力。
After the war was won, Lê Lợi, now emperor,
was taking a boat ride on the lake when the Golden Turtle God, Kim Qui came up
and asked him to return it to his master the Dragon Lord Long Quân.
Grateful for the strength the sword had given him,
Lê Lợi returned the sword to the Golden Turtle
who took it in his mouth and swam down into the lake.
Some say you can still see the shiny reflection of the sword at the bottom of the lake.
Depicted in the style of a Đông Sơn drum,
massive ornamental bronze drums crafted by people of the Đông Sơn culture,
the story is told through abstract drawings and geometric patterns in concentric circles.​

战争胜利后,Lê Lợi 成为了皇帝,
他在湖面上架船游览时,突然出现一只叫做 Kim Qui 的金钱龟,
告诉他应将此剑归还其主龙王 Long Quân。
于是 Lê Lợi 照做,将宝剑送与金钱龟,
于是 Ha Noi 便以 Đông Sơn 鼓的风格进行绘制,
这是一种 Đông Sơn 文化中巨大的装饰铜鼓形象,


Leveraging the transformative power of our MNDALA 2 engine,
these already-vivid sounds have been artistically reinterpreted
and reshaped into a multitude of new forms.
This creative endeavor presents a dynamic palette brimming with a myriad of sonic-colors that reflect Hanoi,
including not only instruments but also soundscapes captured throughout Northern Vietnam.​

由于借助了 MNDALA 2 引擎的强大力量,
With Ha Noi, you are invited into the soundworld of this special city.
Ha Noi tells a rich tale of heritage and innovation
that resonates with the heartbeat of a city in motion.​

通过 Ha Noi,你将进入这个独特城市的声音世界。
