Echo City is founded on the concept that by using sound sources that are well designed and built, and which above sound great and work as genuine musical instruments, anyone can be encouraged to enjoy the experience of playing music. The instruments are unusual, and are intended to inspire curiosity rather than the inhibition which traditional instruments, which there long histories may engender.

Echo City's main tool for promoting this access to music has been the 'Mobile' or 'Pod', with which they have been touring since 1985. The 'Mobile' also serves as a means of 'road testing' the designs, and as you will see, from the shots below, they get quite a beating some times.
