Tape loops, the earliest recording of reverb and the world’s longest echo. Verity Sharp explores the echo chambers of adventurous music.

Verity Sharp explores the echo chambers of adventurous music. Including the first recorded use of artificial reverb from the bathroom of Bill Putnam, founder of one of America’s first independent recording studios, Universal Recording in Chicago. Bill turned his bathroom into a makeshift echo chamber to record an instrumental ballad with a trio of harmonica players in 1912. And the world’s longest reverb time, recorded in a disused oil container in the Scottish highlands by Trevor Cox, Professor of Acoustic Engineering.

Plus more music recorded in bathrooms, some innovative tape loop manipulation and an improvised track between a trumpeter and some unexpected reverb.

Produced by Rebecca Gaskell
A Reduced Listening production for BBC Radio 3
