Somatic Echo is a sound installation that turns the human body into an acoustic medium. With transducer loudspeakers and sensors fixed to the head, an eight-channel composition is transmitted directly into the body.

The vibration of the sound is conducted through the bones, so that you perceive the sound through the medium of your own body. This experience can be compared to one of our earliest sensory perceptions: the immediate, physical sound experience of an unborn child in the womb.
