Escape from isolation was a desire for Sherry Finzer last June when she made her way to The Tank in Rangely, CO to record the second release in her “Naked Flute” series: “Renewal”.
Drawing influence from the legendary Paul Horn and his recordings “Inside the Taj Mahal“, Sherry‘s hope for this meditative release is that the music brings the listener peace, light, love, and hope for our future.
Constructed around 1940 as a railroad water-treatment facility, the Tank was moved by a utility company to Rangely in the mid-1960s for use as part of a fire suppression system. The plan was never realized, as the underlying shale proved unable to support the weight of the filled tank. However, the bed of gravel upon which the tank was placed bowed its floor into a gentle parabola, giving it its remarkable acoustical resonance. For more information on The Tank visit tanksounds.org.
