• Show Bio for Tatsuya Nakatani
"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."-Tatsuya Nakatani Website (http://www.hhproduction.org/tatsuya_bio.html)

sample the album:
"The third release for the collaboration of Assif and Tatsuya, each one is titled after a different Ellington's composition and on this one it is "I got it bad" which gets it's invocation betweens Tatsuya's bells and Assif's deep and dark tenor. What sets the tone for a mystical journey of 20 tracks full of moods fitting of a Tarkovsky film sound track. The two match tone colors and overtones with breaths of angular intervals to create a beautifully strange soundscape."-Hopscotch
