Echoes was first commissioned by Venice Agendas, and launched at the Venice Biennale in May 2017, appearing also in Margate and Folkestone before coming to Bristol.
In Echoes, a number of musicians and performers respond to a soundtrack created by artist Young In Hong; a compilation of political statements by public figures ranging from Donald Trump to Michael Moore, with sound recordings of political demonstrations taken at various locations around the world.
As the musicians improvise live musical responses to the soundtrack through headphones, the work becomes a one-person protest, raising ideas of equality and difference through individual expression.
