Japanese-born, New York-based percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani is known as a star of the NYC improv scene, having collaborated with names like Mary Halvorson, Peter Brotzmann and William Parker. Using a rather simple and wholly organic setup, Nakatani finds surprising creative commonalities between noise music and traditional Japanese folk, all the while incorporating elements of jazz and other American staples. Wednesday’s show at Go Bar also features an exciting lineup of local experimental talent, including doomy sound artist Grant Evans, guitar-based noise duo The 19th Brood, solo drone outfit Aprotag and performance art collective KUSA87.
