Since I’m on the subject of bowed gongs and such, Here are a couple of stellar performance clips of Kobe,Japan born now Pennsylvania based percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani. Contrast his furious free-jazz stylings in the duet with flautist Kaoru Watanabe with the gorgeous drone workout in the solo clip. It’s very enjoyable to see the vocabulary of percussion expanded and stretched into ever lengthening washes of rich sound. Dude’s a complete bad-ass.
Thanks Dave Madden !
