The working title is "Hé", which means together/integrated/whole in Chinese, which echoes the form of this work and allows the user to experience the meaning of combination. Hé (together) re-decomposes existing audio by physically splitting elements such as rhythm and rhyme, lyricist and lyrics. This way allows the user to listen to the accompaniment alone or just the songs alone and listen to the complete music. The audio is modular in design, with the three parts connected by magnet induction with induction charging, and the module can disassemble to experience features such as stereo surround. When opened, the audio connection to mobile phones and computers via Bluetooth. When in use, users can enjoy the experience of assembling blocks, also transforming sound into blocks that can be touched, which makes the user's experience more enjoyable.
