After a turbulent year filled with fear, sadness, despair, and disbelief, Sherry Finzer was able to make a trip to Rangely, CO to record another album in her “Naked Flute” series – Renewal, letting her emotions flow through her solo flute improvisations. 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. Sherry’s intent with this music is to bring hope in the light of darkness.
