Notes

“Pan, god of the wild, tore the mountain nymph Ekho into pieces out of jealousy of her musical virtuosity and unrequited lust for her. Gaia, goddess of the earth, took Ekho’s still-singing fragments and hid them within herself, protecting her music. Ekho still sings, imitating perfectly any earthly sound she hears.” - Longus
