Last spring, the TANK released Slow Beethoven, the first record on its Round Sound label, and we were thrilled to see it appear on Billboard's Classical Crossover chart, rising to Number 14.

Now Slow Beethoven has been enrolled in the nomination process for the GRAMMYs, in the Classical Compendium category.

We're reaching out to all our supporters, especially those in the music industry, to win the record a 2024 GRAMMY award.

Will you spread the word and help this gorgeous album get the attention it deserves?

On June 17, 2021, at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, renowned cellist Jeffrey Zeigler led three other virtuosic players in an adagio movement, the fugue from Beethoven’s String Quartet Number 14 in C-sharp minor, Opus 131.  As they played, they heard the sound of their performance resonating in the profound reverb of The TANK, in which sonic impulses may sustain for up to 40 seconds.


To allow each of the lush, Ludwiggy chords to ring out and fade in The TANK, the quartet had to slow the work radically, so that this short movement, some seven minutes long in the original tempo, took more than 45 minutes for them to play. The result is otherworldly, part Beethoven and part something entirely new.

Meditative, calm, emotional, this music can return you to yourself.
