open closure, old and new year

Extended greetings and creativity to all in the coming year. I passed the turning tide with a great group of old and new friends, in and out of doors. This recording was made on the first of a three day NoYears event held at MoKS. While drifting into the empty oil tanks in Mooste, Maksims Shentelevs played a jew’s harp while I bowed a long metal saw. Special thanks to Mr Holzer for the use of his Core Sound modded DPA mini mics.

update: in 2011 these oil tanks were dismantled and sold for scrap metal. These were some of the best acoustic spaces in the area offering up to 6 seconds of reverberation. Many MoKS visitors used these tanks for sound recording sessions, improvisations, video works etc.
