There is an incredibly special show this Tuesday, the 19th, from 8-11:30. It is the first soundproofed Super Coda! That’s correct. The soundproofing is up starting tomorrow, flat and cushy, enlivening and cancelling, making amends with disgruntled neighbors across the planet. Here’s Johnny!
9 – Tatsuya Nakatani/Pascal Niggenkemper/Frank Gratkowski.
Tatsuya Nakatani (percussion) is originally from Osaka, Japan. In 2006 he performed in 80 cities in 7 countries and collaborated with 163 artists worldwide. In the past 10 years he has released nearly 50 recordings on CD.
He has created his own instrumentation, effectively inventing many instruments and extended techniques. He utilizes drumset, bowed gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, metal objects, bells, and various sticks and bows to create an intense, organic music that defies category or genre. His music is based in improvised/ experimental music, jazz, free jazz, rock, and noise, yet retains the sense of space and beauty found in traditional Japanese folk music.
9:45 – Thomas Heberer with Frank Gratkowski
