Join us for Tiny Bar Session 034 with sound artist/percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani. 

Door 730pm | $6-10 | Show 8pm | RSVP

Tonight, Thursday April 6th at 730pm we're excited to be presenting Tatsuya Nakatani in the Tiny Bar at Black Iris! Nakatani is an acoustic sound artist and master percussionist originally from Osaka, Japan. He has released over eighty recordings in North America and Europe. Recognized for his constant touring, Nakatani criss-crosses the country every year inspiring audiences with his pioneering sound. Nakatani teaches master classes and workshops at universities, giving students an opportunity to share his unique musical approach and philosophy for creating visceral, non-linear music. Having invented many instruments and extended techniques utilizing drums, gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, wooden sticks, metal objects, and the bows and mallets he handcrafts in his Kobo; he creates an intense, intuitively primitive, expressive music that defies genre. His work references improvised-experimental music, free jazz, and noise, while still retaining the sense of space and beauty found in traditional Japanese folk music.

Local punk free jazz trio CGI Jesus will be opening the night with a blast of double bass, sax and drums.
