The TANK…

After a few short rain storms and a great pulled pork dinner from Giovanni’s in Rangely, a large crowd of those present gathered inside The TANK to listen to singing, moaning, chanting, different instruments, a variety of voices and sounds to demonstrate the wide range of sounds that could be made within. The sounds can be described as a pure, eerie, well blended, unique variety of sounds both high and low and with tones rarely heard by one’s ears.
It seems that well in excess of 100 persons were on hand for a social hour, pulled pork dinner from Giovanni’s in Rangely and a great taste of unique tunes and notes as part of the special gathering Friday night at The TANK Center for Sonic Arts. The event was for those who had helped with the Kickstarter Campaign, who joined forces to raise funds to purchase the property in 2012. The TANK was in severe danger of being sold for scrap so musicians, supporters and other TANK enthusiasts formed Friends of The Tank to save the old empty steel water tank.

Not only were sounds and instruments used to make unique sounds on Friday night in The Tank, but human voices were utilized as well. Above are, from left, Lois LaLong, Elaine Urie and Heather Zadra of Rangely singing a moving version of “Amazing Grace.” These three women were also joined in the song by Elaine diFalco of Denton, Texas, at the Solstice Gathering 2016 at The TANK Center for Sonic Arts in Rangely.
