Do something with that $#;+!  Gas Tank Orchestra is a trash-picking do-it-yourself reprocessing project featuring electro-acoustic instruments built from junked automobile gas tanks salvaged from New Orleans' side streets. The tanks have been fitted with strings, pipes, hoses, mouthpieces, etc. and born again as bass, harp, zither, brass, reeds, kalimba, flute, didgeridoo, and percussion. This library resonates with spirits reincarnated via GTO's electro-acoustic wombtombs. One-shots, notes, lines, and loops in Gregory Wildes' eclectic freestyle, some rendered straight to disk, others highly tweaked. Tank up your mix with this essential distillation of refreshed fundamentals.
