h0b0 is the experimental media, pop music project of Rolando Babo, a musician from Amarante, Portugal. The original cooperation happened when Gui was invited to create visuals for h0b0's premiere performance, back in 2017.
After some time working together on other projects, the cooperation came back in 2020. A new audiovisual performance was created and premiered in Teatro Sá da Bandeira on the . The remainder of the tour was cancelled due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic.
Facing this change of routines, h0b0 released an EP created during the quarantine. 𝓻𝓮𝓭𝓸 came into being as a reflection of the continuous effort of personal peace and repetition towards improvement.
As the situation wasn't adequate for live performances, the web, as an experimental platform that connects people, was considered as a means of expression. 𝓻𝓮𝓭𝓸 is composed of 17 short songs that are by themselves loops. These, together, compose a larger loop — the album.
The loop was the conceptual starting point of the web experience. It was thus, logical, to give the ability to loop the songs, and reinforce the ideas of circularity.
You can see here the 𝓻𝓮𝓭𝓸 audiovisual experience.
Along with the usual streaming platforms, you can listen to h0b0's music and buy a cassette on bandcamp.
