How does Life Echo work?
The Life / Echo subject describes sounds associated with their memories
Sounds are tagged accordingly and converted in an audio memory map – a “life echo”
Life echo’s are stored for in a personal timeline, for future playback and reflection

What’s the process?
The memories that you recall will have sounds, our questions encourage you to think about these sounds, as well as how to choose your memory shortlist
Once you’ve completed the questionnaire, it will be submitted to one of our sound artists, there will then be a follow up conversation to explore the answers and the accompanying sounds. This will take around an hour, the artist will explore those sounds which are key to you as well as the memories and stories behind them, these will then form the basis for an artistic re-interpretation of the sounds of your memories
Why don’t we use bad memories? We believe that both creating and listening to your Life Echo should be a positive experience. We don’t believe that that will happen if we pull together the sounds of your bad memories.
Your Life Echo will be thoughtful, bespoke and made only for you.
Will I like the sound?
In some ways, a Life Echo is a sound documentary of your memories, just without any images, we hope that the images are stored in your mind and that the Life Echo will help you to reconnect with them.
Memories and sounds
Once listed, your memories may be ordered in terms of:
- Age and time period
- Geographic location
- Themes (objects or photos, as appropriate)
- Recalled associated colour and frequency sounds
- Emotional impact that the memory draws up
