Join us for a sonic adventure with master percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani and free jazz tenor sax/bass clarinetist Assif Tsahar featuring special guest Gerald Sloan, trombone. This all-ages show includes a cash donation bar for beer and wine, with a suggested donation of $10 at the door.
Tatsuya Nakatani’s sounds erupt and pulse through an elaborate set-up that may include adapted bowed gongs, drums, cymbals, singing bowls, metal objects, bells, sticks, and even kitchen tools. The multifarious assemblage leaves listeners contemplating sounds they cannot trace back to a source. Within the textured collage of sounds, space and quiet beauty (as found in traditional Japanese folk of his homeland), his “very personal sonic world” takes hold.
Nakatani’s Trillium performance is a collaboration with Israeli-born NYC-based saxophonist/clarinetist Assif Tsahar, whose deep roots in free jazz include performing and recording alongside Cecil Taylor, Hamid Drake and Ken Vandermark, just to name a few.
