Nakatani Gong Orchestra at the Chapel Performance Space
NGO Nakatani Gong Orchestra statement
NGO is a non-traditional music orchestra, directed by Tatsuya Nakatani, an acoustic sound artist and percussionist.
Originally from Japan, he has been residing in the USA for 18 years. He is now based in Easton, PA and New York city.
His original idea of NGO was create a rich harmony of multiple gongs, by sharing simple techniques to players and audiences. For each show, he gives specialized training to locally selected gong players. Each player is able to quickly learn about the gong instruments, playing techniques and sign conducting from the conductor Tatsuya Nakatani. This is an ongoing, successful growing project and the only bowing based Gong orchestra exist in the world. The Gong sound is simply magic to anyone. NGO has performed over 60 shows all over the USA since April 2011. Each performance has inspired spirit of all attendees. Many audience members say "I have never experienced this before", in addition they describe having pure cleansing feeling after the event.

Tatsuya Nakatani
-an Acoustic Sound Artist, Percussionist-

Biography:

Tatsuya Nakatani is a creative artist / percussionist originally from Osaka, Japan who has released over sixty recordings in North America and Europe. Residing in the USA since 1994 he has performed countless solo percussion concerts and has collaborated with hundreds of artists in international music festivals, university concert halls, art museums and galleries. His latest project is the Nakatani Gong Orchestra, which builds community ensembles performing on multiple bowed gongs under his direction, as recently presented at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.

Nakatani's constant touring fosters the raw and fresh quality in his music, which can only survive through an open willingness to share energy, culture, music and self on a global human scale. His master classes and workshops at schools and universities, emphasize his unique musical approach and philosophy in creating visceral, non-linear music.

He has created his own instrumentation, effectively inventing many instruments and extended techniques. He utilizes drums, gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, metal objects, bells, and various sticks and bows to create an intense, intuitively primitive, expressive music of unusually strong spirit 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.
