The term Hyperreal Soundscapes concludes everything about my Echodreams.
A Symbolism or an echo|sound|dream could be a conjectural sense of a soundscape,|a soundscape should possess a sacred|hidden Geometry| or a description of a soundscape. Sounds live in a surreal environment and they possess surreal qualities. Often they Are the environment.

Interview with echodream_ |elconestharoe|
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm also slowly, but steadily designing a new EP for elconestharoe...which relaxes me.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: My personal project: "elconEstharoe" [https://soundcloud.com/lambro] Ι believe that in that project I created exactly what I had in mind-I brought my fantasy into the material world better than ever-Hyperreal Soundscapes....So I'm ok..I do not have any serious complaints-even if I live in Greece in a bad economic era-my Lab and my Family (Wife, step-daughter, mr.Cat, Max the dog and Persephony the turtle) are keeping me creative and fulfilled. I've enjoyed answering your questions, I hope my answers will get you to know me a little bit...
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: There is no such thing!...ok!...concept design (in a form of a script-it helps a lot), research, material collection, sound design, orchestration and as a final step and very important: abstraction-even if it hurts!....I very much enjoy listening and creating minimal-austere orchestrations and timbres.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital 'cause when Sound is converted into data, it can be transformed and manipulated into anything your imagination can travel to...Far far away...!!
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: It's a simple concept: Macbook_1 on my left for Recording and Mixing on Logic Pro. Macbook_2 on my right as a multi-sound design tool for all my sound design softwares. In the center-as a central nervous system-a Yamaha_01x digital mixing console and controller for Logic Pro. I also own two Theremin instruments which I adore. For "sound-hunting" in nature I use Tascam's HD-P2 High Definition Stereo field recorder combined with a pair of Behringer's omni-directional flat response 20Hz to 20KHz ECM8000 microphones, in order to simulate-as close as I can-the cat's hearing multi-directional abilities. And recently I was given a Samsung Galaxy tablet as a gift, which I use as a real-time spectrum meter and as a Sound-Design tool by using the exceptional "Jasuto" modular synthesizer.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: There is no promise, if I can do the job-I accept it-if not, I don't-as simple as that. That way I'm stress free-which is very important to me.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Sorry...I'm new here...Of course I would do it if I knew someone-no question about that!
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: No boss!!!!
Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?
A: When and how much....the answer varies of course.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: I do not own a studio, I've created a Lab-a Sound Design Lab!
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: Hmm...technical questions mostly.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: To be clear to his/her self about what he/she wants, so he/she will be explicit to what is asking from the technician.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: (I assume you don't mean food, water or clothing) 1_My field recording kit. 2_My tablet-(my sound tool tablet). 3_A compass. 4_If I were informed in time about the destination-a printed water proof map. 5_Plenty of cigarettes and lighters-I do not cheat-that's for one!!!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: If I include my audio engineering studies and my classical music studies.....Hmm....I'm 38 so...19 years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: The term Hyperreal Soundscapes concludes everything about my Echodreams. A Symbolism or an echo|sound|dream could be a conjectural sense of a soundscape,|a soundscape should possess a sacred-hidden Geometry| or a description of a soundscape. Sounds live in a surreal environment and they possess surreal qualities. Often they Are the environment. |"the sound of rain scours the soul."|"Ο Ήχος της βροχής ξεπλένει την Ψυχή." Lambro-elconestharoe_2017
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: Give me a moment please.... Edward Artemyev. Because he is a surrealist-in my opinion of course. I would really enjoy being his student. (Solaris 1972 OST)
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Patience and studying.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Experimental-Hyperreal Soundscapes-Electronica.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Observation and awareness of my surroundings-(soundscapes).
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I am not a songwriter. This planet have seen enough of that-enough being an understatement.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: The most inspiring music experience was listening for the first time the sound of the planets of our solar system from NASA's "symphonies of the planets" cd's.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Sound Design and Soundscape synthesis for "elconestharoe" and short films.
