Tunes from the Tank Program

The creativity-enhancing properties of Floating are attested by our Tunes from the Tank Program's initial alumni, David Alexander, whose band Carousel Kings was signed to Victory Records, releasing their album Charm City on February 10, 2017.

Float three times for free, with the understanding that by after the second Float you’ll start and finish a project (song, minimally) within one month. We think you’ll be amazed at everything your mind creates when you eliminate the distractions of the outside world.

Is there a deadline for signing up?  There is a cap on active participants, but otherwise applications are accepted at any time.

Are there requirements for the music itself? Does it have to be about Floating? The only minimal requirement is a single song posted to one of the artist's social media or music profile pages (i.e. Spotify, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, YouTube, etc.), also provided as an mp3 to East Coast Float Spa. The subject can be whatever you like, but if you want to make it Float-related that's awesome!.

What will happen when I sign up? We’ll get in contact with you to schedule a brief review of your submission, discuss the program, and if everyone thinks it will be a good fit, we will sign the contract and schedule your three Floats immediately!

How will my music be used? When you sign our contract, you’ll grant us royalty-free rights to use the work in promotional and commercial projects.. We will use the work to promote the artists and Floating. You will retain ownership of your work. Click here to view a copy of our contract.

Can I participate if I’ve never Floated before? Definitely! If you want to try out Floating before applying to the program, we have first time specials available, or give us a call and we'll be happy to help get you scheduled!

How do I apply? Completing our online application takes just a few minutes to let us know your interest and provide us a sample of your work!

Carousel Kings On How Floatation Therapy Made ‘Charm City’

Vocalist David Alexander shares that Charm City came together so well thanks to… floatation therapy? “We took a lot of time off to write,” he begins. “During that time, we were doing a lot of floatation therapy. We would demo stuff out and go into this float room and listen to it in there just for hours. We spent, like, a year doing that: floating and demoing songs. We were trying to relax as much as possible.”

OK, so what is flotation therapy? “[It’s] sensory deprivation,” Alexander explains. “The idea is you go in with a clear mind and your thoughts disappear, and like a volcano erupting, these little thought bubbles spur sometimes. We just tried to get the most clear, original, and concise ideas that we could.”

“I view it as a tool or a catalyst that can work like a meditation state,” he continues. “In those, you can literally change your brain by the thoughts you’re feeding your mind. It’s really relaxing: 10 inches of water, 1,000 pounds of Epsom salts, the water is the same temperature as your body, and you go in with earplugs. You can have a little blue light on or off, but otherwise, it’s complete darkness—you and your mind. You go in there for a minimum of 60 minutes. I usually go in for overnights, which can go up to four hours. It’s the most relaxing thing, like your own personal Dead Sea experience.”
