Pulse-echo was commissioned by the Serge Koussevitzky Foundation in the Library of Congress for NOVA Chamber Music Series (Salt Lake City, Utah) and artistic director Jason Hardink. It was premiered in February, 2014. Hardink was interviewed by Edward Reichel for the web newsletter Reichel Recommends: Eckardt is a proponent of New Complexity, a term coined in the 1980s to describe music that verges on the extreme edge of playability. While acknowledging the music's difficulty, Hardink also sees more than just a jumble of notes on a page. 'Jason's music is intense, complex and dissonant,' he said, 'but there is an underlying energy and joy of life in it.' [As] Hardink pointed out, 'it's not a piano-centric work. The strings play around the resonances from the piano. They play off of what the piano plays.' In that regard it's a true chamber work in concept.
