ECHO CHAMBER is an instrumental trio formed by Davide Lorenzon, Michele Pedrazzi and Chris Hill. The three musicians, already active in the experimental scene of Berlin, met through different projects and collaborations, often gravitating around the label Aut Records. Meeting as three foreigner in Berlin has a sort of ironic side (maybe a risk to build your own “echo chamber”?), but also an opportunity to rethink musical roots and sensitivity. The result is a jazz-influenced music, that finds its way among pulsating electronics, melodic statements and odd rhythms, that eludes “cliché chambers” and looks for new idioms.
