A musician friend owns the Tank and land. He will donate both to us when we succeed with the Kickstarter campaign. We are "Friends of the Tank", a Colorado not for profit corporation created and organized to be stewards of this structure.
-add electrical service; install a larger door; build a small control room with an internet connection; clean, paint, refit locks, hatches, and doors to make the building safe for use; put up the TANK CHANNEL on the web to share TANK sounds; establish outreach programs with local schools and organizations; end up with a more developed facility for sustained future use and programs. Kickstarter and Amazon Payments take their cut as do T-Shirts, CD's and mailing.
We have an ongoing, open conversation with our supporters and interested parties about use and future programs. A process for submitting proposals to play and record in the TANK has yet to be decided. When the nonprofit board makes that decision, we'll publicize to our supporters first. As of now, use and programs are intentionally undefined; we wish to define this within this growing TANK community.
Proposals might include; Artist residency programs, Education, listening exercises, recording sessions, invitations to specific artists to record in the TANK, limited small concert performances, sound art or acoustical explorations, studies of perception cognition, architecture.
