Save the Tank
In the gray dirt hills of northwestern Colorado lies a world-class acoustic space known as the Tank, where musicians have been recording and listening since the 1970s. Â It’s now in danger of being sold for scrap. Â Myself and a team of sound artists and musicians are raising funds via Kickstarter to save it from this fate. Â Please help pass on the word, and contribute if you can.
I’ve had the pleasure of playing and recording there myself, I can attest: Â it is a very special place. Â The resonance that I’ve absorbed in that space is something I carry with me; it informs my understanding of sound, of soundmaking, of listening, of music.

to learn more, and to hear music recorded there. The campaign ends March 31, 2013.
