Founded by Neil Leiter and Margaret Hermant, the Brussels-based Echo Collective is a diverse group of classically trained musicians. They have forged an enviable reputation in the post-classical world and have lended their interpretative intuition to genres as diverse as alt.rock, synth-pop and black metal.
The group has collaborated with modern composers (e.g. Joep Beving and the late J. Jóhannsson) and bands (e.g. A Winged Victory For The Sullen) on concerts, tours, film scores, recording sessions, and original compositions.
In 2019 Echo Collective released Johann Johannson’s string quartet ‘12 Conversations with Thilo Heinzmann’ on Deutsche Grammphon. Finally, an album of their own material, The See Within (2020) on 7K!, confirms Echo Collective are equally inspired creators.
