• 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)

descriptions, reviews, &c.
"NRA is a multi-national, electro-acoustic, free-improvising trio comprised of Tatsuya Nakatani (percussion - Japan), Vic Rawlings (open-circuit electronics, amplified prepared cello - U. S. A.), and Ricardo Arias (bass balloon kit - Colombia). The trio creates a sound world that is simultaneously austere and excessive, static and explosive. Their performance practice is firmly based on a kinetic-physical approach to their respective instruments, yet it is devoid of the heavy-lifting trappings of commonplace physical music. The players have themselves created their own distinctive instruments and techniques, each bringing markedly contrasting sonic materials to the ensemble. Their compositional approach exploits the intersection of these disparate sounds within the confines of particular times and spaces."-H&H Production
