Inspired by the story of Echo, the nymph from Greek mythology, the two parts of the string orchestra in Echoes of the Unspoken act as the protector of these hidden threads of her voice. They enrich, embrace, and amplifies the soloist, much like the traces of Echo’s voice that were hidden within Gaia, the Mother Earth. The en masse sonority also at times works as a premonition to what is to come, fostering a malleable and organic environment that supports the soloistic materials to manifest.
