descriptions, reviews, &c.

Percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani's approach to music is visceral, non-linear and intuitively primitive, expressing an unusually strong spirit while avoiding any categorization. He creates sound via both traditional and extended percussion techniques, utilizing drums, bowed gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, metal objects and bells, as well as various sticks, kitchen tools and homemade bows, all of which manifest in an intense and organic music that represents a very personal sonic world. His approach is steeped in the sensibilities of free improvisation, experimental music, jazz, rock, and noise, and yet retains the sense of space and quiet beauty found in traditional Japanese folk music.

Guitarist Shane Perlowin is a multi-disciplinary guitarist whose music straddles the boundaries between ever-deepening traditional study and primal idiosyncratic expression. His prolific discography as guitarist and composer of the experimental rock band Ahleuchatistas is appreciated around the world for its high intensity, dark beauty and unreserved expansiveness. Though a fixture in avant-garde circles, Perlowin expresses deep universal sentiments through rhythmic pulses, hypnotic textures, and simple melodic inventiveness. His approach is a hybrid of classical guitar, world music, blues, American primitivism, jazz, rock, and free improvisation.

Together, Nakatani & Perlowin share a chemistry that casts percussion and guitar in unique roles. At times, Perlowin ties the room together with insistent morphing arpeggios while Nakatani paints worlds of texture and frenzied activity by scraping and bowing. Lyrical passages caressed from nylon strings are punctuated by metallic events, whose simultaneity is reminiscent of the collaborations of John Cage and Merce Cunnigham. It is their respective years of improvising and craft-honing that prepared Nakatani and Perlowin for the music that would result from their encounter. And, it was fortune that permitted this particular musical moment to be documented.


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."
