=e=c=h=o= is a sound piece based on the freezing of a piece of audio from a synthesizer into a delay line. Left on hold in the buffer of this delay, I then played around in real time with the controls of the effect, stretching the sound-ghost in pitch and rhythm, curious to see what this very minimal situation would create. A sizzle of granular delay was added later, itself made up from extreme repetitions of the now-original material.
