Stay Strange presents Nakatani Gong Orchestra
The NAKATANI GONG ORCHESTRA - NGO - is a nomadic, large ensemble contemporary sound art project. Local musicians are trained in Nakatanis technique for playing his adapted bowed gong, and he conducts them in a performance of his original composition.

In the last decade, the NGO has performed hundreds of concerts involving thousands of participants around the world in the creation of these transformative sound works.

For each unique performance, participating NGO players (musicians) are selected by a local presenter. Nakatani gives a specialized rehearsal to the players in preparation for the performance. There is no expectation of previous experience playing a gong. Nakatani instructs the players in his unique techniques for bowing the gong and following his method of conducting. It is important to note that this project is not a traditional music program or traditional Japanese music, it is a contemporary sound art project.
