Save the Tank! And upcoming events.

The TankSave 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.  It’s now in danger of being sold for scrap.  Myself and a team of sound artists and musicians are raising funds via Kickstarter to save it from this fate.  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:  it is a very special place.  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.
Please visit to learn more, and to hear music recorded there. The campaign ends March 31, 2013.
