Echo

Description: Recording of Ross Harris's Echo performed by Mary Robbie, trumpet. The work is for solo trumpet and tape delay, which has the effect of producing "canonic echoes" of the solo voice. In concert performance, the two channels of delayed sound are to be placed outside the performance area, there by expanding the space, and the performer's sound appears to move out from the player and away into the distance. The piece was written for Mary Robbie, who performs it in this recording.
