THE TANK is an acoustical marvel, a senses-altering experience found nowhere else on earth. A 60' tall, 30' across rusted steel water tank - never used - was discovered in Colorado by sound artist and sonic thinker ​Bruce Odland in 1976. A small group of musicians has been recording there ever since.

THE TANK is a sonic wonder of the world, with a shifting, swirling reverberation longer and richer than the Taj Majal or the Great Pyramid. Sitting unnoticed in the dirt hills outside Rangely, Colorado — surrounded by oil pumps and dirt bike trails — the profound acoustic beauty within is balanced by the austerity of its remote location and its simple industrial architecture.

WIKIPEDIA (excerpt):
The Ear of Dionysius (Italian: Orecchio di Dionisio) is an artificial limestone cave carved out of the Temenites hill in the city of Syracuse, on the island of Sicily in Italy. Its name comes from its similarity in shape to the human ear.
The Ear of Dionysius was most likely formed out of an old limestone quarry. It is 23 metres high and extends 65 metres back into the cliff. Horizontally, it bends in an approximate "S" shape, vertically it is tapered at the top like a teardrop. Because of its shape the Ear has extremely good acoustics, making even a small sound resonate throughout the cave.

OMN member Peter Govan has arranged a 'sacred sound' event including overtone singing in the remarkable acoustic space of Hamilton Mausoleom.
You may listen to a recording of his singing here:

Millions of tourists visit the leaning and tower of Pisa and most of them also find time to see the baptistery which is part of the same ecclesiastical complex. Every half hour they have the chance to listen to a demonstration of the amazing acoustic properties, when a ticket vendor or guard sings a standard line of chords in one voice. They could probably have found better singers but the effect of the long reverb is extraordinary and makes it possible to sing a three-note-chord even without being an overtone singer.

Mathildenhöhe, Darmstadt, Fünf-Finger-Turm Wasserreservoir

The video gives you an impression of this impressive acoustic space. The quality of both image and sound is unfortunately very poor. On the other hand what is heard is a performance of the ground breaking overtone composition Stimmung (1968) by K. H. Stockhausen (1928-2007).

@Charly Wintermeyer:
Ich habe jetzt eine marke auf die karte bei Vang Vieng eingeführt. Es gibt auch ein link für ein von die videos.

I have placed a marker at the village of Vang Vieng, Laos, seven kilometers from the Tham Pou Kham cave. There is also a link to one of the videos shot by Charly Wintermeyer in the cave. You may find three more videos at his profile page here on OMN
