Echo Chamber

An echo chamber, actually a misnomer, is a hollow enclosure used to produce reverberated sounds, usually for recording purposes. For example, the producers of a television or radio program might wish to produce the aural illusion that a conversation is taking place in a large room or a cave; these effects might be accomplished by playing the recording of the conversation inside an echo chamber, with an accompanying microphone to catch the reverberation.In music, the use of acoustic echo and reverberation effects has taken many forms and dates back many hundreds of years.
