"Excerpts from 2012 Taiga LP release. Perpetually rolling, Japanese-American master percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani holds a relentless schedule, road-bound in continuous dedication to his passion. His solo sets thunder with coaxed nuances from his kit, overlaid in staggering bounty. Nakatani is also fearless when it comes to collaboration, and seeks it out adventurously during his extensive tours. In this spirit of combined efforts, Nakatani Gong Orchestra shines a different light in each new location it arises. Nakatani has been packing his van with gongs and his handmade bows, mallets and surrounding instruments throughout 2011 and 2012. Each stop offers a new set of five or six players who have a brief technique workshop and practice with Nakatani before performing fresh to a live audience. Encompassing a wide range of different backgrounds and experience, each performance results in vastly different soundscapes. Many of these Nakatani Gong Orchestra rituals have been recorded, highlights from which have been extracted and compiled seamlessly for this LP. Recorded 2011 and 2012 in Easton PA, Oberlin OH, Philadelphia PA, Kansas City KS, Richmond VA and Toledo OH, the Nakatani Gong Orchestra LP was mastered by James Plotkin."-TAIGA


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."
