I Saw You is the distillation of Right Belief and Right Action, heretofore unknown private issue cassettes from 1986 and 1987 by Peter Thomas Kardas. A student of Guitar Craft and accredited member of The League of Crafty Guitarists, Kardas drew inspiration from Robert Fripp's loop-based Frippertronics, but the expansive, introspective washes of synths and repeated phrases and vocalizations are utterly their own thing, conjuring the independence, awe and isolation of the remote Northern Californian landscapes in which they were created.
Produced and remastered by Peter Kardas.
Cover and Layout by Peter Kardas and Aleya Hoerlein.
Produced in collaboration with Yoga Records.

Echo Ocho began as two friends — Tyler and Chris — sharing strange, beautiful, and often unheralded or forgotten sounds through streaming mixes and occasional writing. Now Echo Ocho is also a record label releasing music that we love and which is in keeping with Echo Ocho's open-eared celebration of eccentric and deeply-personal music.
This website is Echo Ocho's home. Please come back to check out Echo Ocho releases as well as periodic streaming mixes via Radio Echo Ocho.
