Tank Masters Series Ida Toninato We Become Giants

Montréal-based saxophonist, composer and improviser Ida Toninato has an ear for the unknown and a history of exploring reverberant spaces. She came to the Tank in September, 2018, to make this album, We Become Giants, which was beautifully post-produced at Studio Makina in Montréal by sound artist Blaise Borboën-Léonard.

We Become Giants was released this year on the Dragon’s eye Recordings, a Los Angeles-based label curated by Yann Novak. “Powerful sonic ideas have stemmed from the magnificent reverberation of the Tank, a former water cistern located in the high desert, its magical vibe,” Ida notes.

Exclaim! magazine called the record “a marvel of technique and emotion, of patience and careful post-production, combining long near-silences with beautiful and terrifying reverberant tones that multiply in fractal form, each detail as rich and intense as its source.”
