TANK Center for Sonic Arts

Friends of The Tank

The Tank is an acoustical marvel, a senses-altering experience found nowhere else on earth. A 60′ tall, 30′ across rusted steel water tank—never used—was discovered in Colorado by sound artist and sonic thinker ​Bruce Odland in 1976. A small group of musicians has been recording there ever since. ​The Tank is a sonic wonder of the world, with a shifting, swirling reverberation longer and richer than the Taj Majal or the Great Pyramid. Sitting unnoticed in the dirt hills outside Rangely, Colorado—surrounded by oil pumps and dirt bike trails—the profound acoustic beauty within is balanced by the austerity of its remote location and its simple industrial architecture.

​The Friends of the Tank recently completed a successful Kickstarter Campaign to raise the funds to keep The Tank a musical resource for all to share.
