‘Echo Chamber’

is a result of recent collaboration between our Composition Postgraduate year at Trinity Laban and The Hermes Experiment ensemble.

In the piece, which is about 3 minutes long, I was drawing upon the notion of post-pandemic inhibition towards the crowd. The textual layer of the song consists of only one sentence (Oh so many people in one place) that takes on different emotional angles oscillating between fear, anger, wonder and hope. 

The reason why it’s called Echo Chamber is partly because of the isolation encountered during pandemic, but also because the piece would work best in spaces with large reverberation.
