Two years in the making, Origin and Echo builds on the foundations of its predecessor, Intervals with a heavy quotient of metallophones, glockenspiels and marimbas at its core, but largely eschews the latter's chamber arrangements in favor of soaring synth-scapes and a palette of spectral ambient and electronic textures. Despite that, Origin and Echo is a more performative record than was Intervals, its 11 organic, kinetic pieces meticulously constructed by David Sheppard from initial percussive skeletons largely essayed instinctively, in free time, without click-tracks and with almost no guitar.

The album is loosely predicated on themes of mirroring and rebounding, whether physical or metaphorical, inspired by everything from the gravity-defying parabolas of space flight to patterns of human migration and feelings of déjà vu summoned by nostalgic journeys. 
While the album is mostly the work of David Sheppard working alone or in tandem with producer Giles Barrett, it also features cameos from previous Snow Palms collaborator Christopher Leary (synthesisers), alongside Emma Winston (Omnichord), Lauri Wuolio (cupola drum) and Village Green label-mate Angèle David-Guillou (keyboards).
