Low-latency, high-quality audio transmission over next-generation Internet is a reality. Bidirectional, multichannel flows over continental distances have been demonstrated in musical jam sessions and other experimental situations. The dominating factor in delay is no longer system issues, but the transmission time bounded by lightspeed. This paper addresses a method for creating shared acoustical spaces by "echo construction." Where delays in bidirectional paths are sufficiently short and "room-sized," they can be used to advantage as components in synthetic, composite reverberation.
