Echo is an interactive sound installation which initially began as a public intervention which transformed the sounds of unknowing participants in public spaces, but slowly began to investigate the active voice of the audience.

The installation uses stuttering and feedback to create distorted and volatile soundscapes which audiences can manipulate with their voice. Through technological mediation, Echo explores how people can use their bodies in transgressive ways when a simple action, such as speech, is transformed into something new and unfamiliar.
