We’re proud to host the Nakatani Gong Orchestra for a special one night only performance!
Monday, December 12
Doors at 8 pm
Percussion virtuoso Tatsuya Nakatani has appeared in Detroit as jaw-dropping soloist; as an imaginative free improvisor in a duo with Swedish guitarist David Stackenas and in a trio with Jack Wright and French saxophonist Michel Doneda; as a Johnny Cash-beat-free accompanist to Dr. Eugene Chadbourne in their extended-technique Country duo, New Directions in Appalachian Music (at the inaugural ART X); and as the Portuguese-singing vocalist/drummer in Bossa-Nova group Yukijurushi. Now he returns to showcase his Nakatani Gong Orchestra- an ensemble made up of local musicians who have been work-shopped in preparation for this performance.
A master at extracting more sound than thought possible from the gong, Tatsuya’s solo performances rank as one of the most extraordinary musical offerings that you can hear today. With a full ensemble of sympathetically resonating gongs, this will be a sonic treat unlike anything heard in these parts for some time.
In an effort to double the intensity in 2012, we’ll be hosting our notorious open hack nights two times a month — the first and third Thursday. Why, you ask? After being in operation for a year and a half, we’ve decided to concentrate our collective cranial creativity in order to crank out the most extreme projects for all to enjoy in the new, potentially apocolyptic new year.
We look forward to seeing all nerds, makers, hackers, designers, artists and iconoclasts every first and thirdThursdays starting January 5th, 2012!
