Alongside NY percussion improviser Sean Meehan, Tatsuya Nakatani's approach to percussion uses alternative methods of interacting with traditional percussive instruments. This recordings is of a single improvisation recorded in one take without overdubs. It's a building set that starts with a long bowing of a Chines gong, which develops into a fascinating dialog with various cymbals, bowls and drums which are struck, rubbed and bowed to create different voices in a monolog of great variety. Primal doesn't mean agressive, and the sounds here are subtle, resonant, introspective, and always interesting.

"Primal Communication, a single, 57-minute solo improvisation, would seem to be an important work for Nakatani. His liner notes are a quick autobiography of his experiences moving from Japan to the U.S. and his development and interests as a musician; the packaging includes two painted portraits and one formal photograph. The presentation strongly implies that this isnÕt just a session he was happy with but a summation of where heÕs come so far. And the music stands up to the projected significance. From the sonic booms of the opening to the cymbals scraped across drumheads, screeching like a violin with distemper, the overall effect suggests a thunderstorm waking up in the morning."-Kurt Gottschalk, The Squid's Ear

Artist Biographies:

"Tatsuya Nakatani. Acoustic Sound Artist, Master Percussionist. b. 1970, Osaka Japan

Tatsuya Nakatani is an acoustic sound artist and master percussionist originally from Osaka, Japan. He has released over eighty recordings in North America and Europe. Residing in the USA since the mid-nineties, he has performed countless solo percussion concerts and has collaborated with hundreds of artists in international music festivals, university concert halls, art museums and independent venues. Infamous for his constant touring, Nakatani criss-crosses the country every year inspiring audiences with his pioneering sound. In addition to his solo performances, he conducts the Nakatani Gong Orchestra (NGO), a mobile community engagement project which organizes local ensembles performing on multiple bowed gongs.Nakatani teaches master classes and workshops at universities, giving students an opportunity to share his unique musical approach and philosophy for creating visceral, non-linear music.

He has created his own instrumentation, effectively inventing many instruments and extended techniques. Utilizing drums, gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, wooden sticks, metal objects, and the bows and mallets he handcrafts in his Kobo; he creates an intense, intuitively primitive, expressive music that defies genre. His work references improvised-experimental music, free jazz, and noise, while still retaining the sense of space and beauty found in traditional Japanese folk music."
