Video: The Echo Collective – The See Within

The Echo Collective are a Belgian neoclassical act who have created a richness of texture from two instruments in their new track The See Within.

By Graeme Smith

The bedrock of the piece is harp Рfloating and nostalgic as it comes in waves. It meets with mournful cello slowly bowed before a single plucked bass note reverberates across the aural landscape. For such an ambient piece to hold such atmosphere, texture and surprise twists is quite the achievement. I found The See Within to be utterly compelling.

The accompanying visualiser video feels a lot like being in an isolation chamber. Switch off the lights, go full screen and enjoy!
