"Suara Rimba (Voice of the wilderness)" dan "Salam Harapan(Greeting of Hope)", 1998
Original music and video by Hasnul J Saidon
Musical arrangement by Hafiez Askiak, Hasnul J Saidon dan Hasnizam Wahid
Performed by EAG (electro-acoustic group) UNIMAS.

Two music videos that may perhaps best express my six years of gardening in Sarawak and UNIMAS (Universiti Malaysia Sarawak).

As a prelude to the videos, we take a peek at some of the photographs of EAG (Electro-acoustic Group) UNIMAS, the core of my music life in Sarawak and UNIMAS. The members (and songs that we had performed in various locations/events) will be forever etched in my heart.
