Movie Info

Internationally known as 'The Live Music Capital of the World,' Austin's music culture has led it to become one of the world's most sought-after destinations. As nearly two dozen high-rises pop up throughout the city amidst an economic downfall, how does the working musician get along? This lyrical documentary provides a telescopic view into the lives of Austin's vibrant young musicians as they grapple with questions of artistic integrity, commercialism, experimentation, and the future of their beloved city. "Echotone" is a cultural portrait of the modern American city examined through the lyrics and lens of its creative class. -- (C) Official Site

  • The realities in Nathan Christ's impressive documentary "Echotone" are, sadly, nothing new. But the emotions surrounding them are nevertheless compelling.

    Sep 8, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Too vital for elegy, Echotone tells an old story whose beginning -- the inception of a vibrant creative hub -- remains mysterious, although the end is easy to predict.

  • There's a potentially fascinating and appreciably more concise 60-minute documentary to be found somewhere amid the uneven and unfocused 88-minute hodgepodge.

  • First-time documentary filmmaker Nathan Christ paints a compelling, if somewhat diffuse, portrait of a city-to say nothing of an entire industry-in transition.

    Sep 8, 2011 | Full Review…
  • A representative, if frustratingly impressionistic, regional-cultural update on Austin's now epochal music scene.

    Sep 4, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • With striking imagery of Austin's upward rising skyline, the film follows some of the city's talented but struggling music makers.
