World of Echo
Sharing a love of Arthur Russell's 1986 album, World of Echo, musician David Sheppard and Artist Louise Clarke chose to use its resonant song titles as springboards for new fictions. With each participant unaware of what the other was writing, these short, sudden narratives reverberate between the pair with a curious synchronicity, ideas and images rebounding surprisingly far from Russell's original ambit, liked ringed waves emanating from a stone thrown in a lake.
The new short stories produced took their inception from the song titles of Arthur Russell's 1986 album World of Echo. Both Louise Clarke and David Sheppard independently wrote new, original fictional works which were accompanied by Louise Clarke personal, previously unseen sketches and artworks.
