Tatsuya Nakatani

Tatsuya Nakatani (1970, Osaka) is a Japanese avant-garde sound artist and master percussionist. Based in the Truth or Consequences, New Mexico; he has released over 80 recordings and tours internationally. Performing solo, in collaboration, and with his Nakatani Gong Orchestra (NGO) project he plays over 100 concerts a year.

With his adapted Gong and handcrafted Kobo bow, Nakatani has developed his own unique instrumentation. A master of new sounds and extended technique; he sculpts a transformative, intense, expressive sound that engages improvised and experimental music while resisting genre. Central to his philosophy of sound is the concept of MA 間, which can be understood as the space or interval between perceptual events.
