ECHO is a new online, open access, peer-reviewed journal that exists to share creative work and understanding in the common space at the intersection of music, thought and technology.

An initiative of the MTT (Music, Thought and Technology) research group at the Orpheus Institute, Ghent, ECHO welcomes artist-researchers to submit contributions for development on its custom platform.

Authors are encouraged to structure digitally-native storytelling around their creative work, using media-rich materials, nonlinear navigation and tools of data representation and interactive code. The ECHO software environment is made available to contributors to experiment.

As well as current composition, performance and sonic and web-based art, original approaches to musicological, theoretical and technological topics are very welcome.

ECHO will appear twice yearly. Topics will remain open for further submission for as long as they remain relevant. Readers are invited to submit comment on articles or response pieces.

Initial issues will address technological concepts that have wide currency in contemporary discourse: digital archive, network, feedback, simulation. The next issue – Networks, edited by Juan Parra Cancino – will appear in Spring 2021.

Editors-in-chief: Jonathan Impett, Nicolas Collins
