Fermata (the Dixie Brewery Fermentation Tank Session)

Startling Moniker on Murmur

... The disc being subjected to so much hyperbole is none other than “Fermata,” by Murmur, a sonic exploration of the inside of a fermentation tank, way back in mid-2005. Naturally, it’s a droning wonder, and probably more than a little painful to actually record. From my experience, the standing waves created in a highly reverberant space are uncomfortable at best– but these fellows are of stronger stuff than I, having dragged a harmonium AND and e-bow into the tank as proof. There’s other instruments as well, but none which I imagine being quite so suited to producing abdomen-quaking sound in an enclosed space than these!
