Echo City sees the solution to providing drums for workshops and sonic play in utilising a found object rather than attempting to overcome the myriad problems presented by drumheads and tensionsing mechanisms, such as one might find in traditional kit drums.

Echo City chooses, prepares and suspnds its drums from a range of polyethylene 'blue' drums that are most frequently used in transportation of foodstuffs. In addition, the group uses aluminium milk churns and other found objects such as water bottles.
