Commissioned to mark the 10th anniversary of the University of Calgary's Rozsa Centre, Ho's Two Postcards: Prelude and Groove was written using solfege compositional procedures based on two words that held special meaning to the Rozsa family: Lola and doodlebug. The phonetic quality of the name Lola inspired Ho's writing of Prelude, reminding him of the poetry of Arthur Rimbaud, where the poet's choice of words was based on their phonetic sounds to intensify the reader’s experience. For Groove, Ho was inspired by the original meaning of doodlebug - a self-propelled personal railcar - and he couldn't help but imagine a cartoon railcar bopping and singing along as it carried its passengers to their destinations.
