Tatsuya Nakatani, improvisational percussionist

Date: March 19, 2013
Time: 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Location: Performing Arts Center Recital Hall
Description: Fine Arts.
Tatsuya Nakatani is a creative percussionist from Osaka, Japan, who has lived since 1994 in Easton, Penn. Nakatani's approach to music is intuitively primitive, expressing an unusually strong spirit while avoiding any categorization. Described as the "Jimi Hendrix of the percussion world," 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. The performance will feature a first-time ever collaboration with SCSU's Dr. Scott Miller and the KYMA digital synthesis system. THIS will be THE concert that will leave the audience wondering, "how did he do that?"
