    It is literally in the quest for Echo, in the village of the rocks, that Jacob Kirkegaard embarked in his intervention, which was aimed straight to the heart of the myth. “I will be looking for Echo”, was Kirkegaard’s focus on arriving in Balme, the village of alpine guides which lies right underneath an imposing wall of rock, and whose sublime landscapes are part of the local museum’s heritage. Kirkegaard’s research, which ideally continues the one he began last year in the deserted spaces of Chernobyl, aims at finding – or we’d better say revealing – the aural quality of spaces which are apparently devoid of any particular sound hues. In each one of these spaces, he carries on an acoustic recording of some minutes, that is played and recorded again in the same space, over and over, to excite the appearance of overtones and the place’s hidden sounds.
