7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
St. Petersburg/Gibbs Campus
Music Center, located at 6605 Fifth Ave. N., St. Petersburg
Tatsuya Nakatani (percussionist) is originally from Osaka, Japan. He has created his own instrumentation, effectively inventing many instruments and extended techniques. He utilizes drum set, bowed gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, metal objects, bells, and various sticks and bows to create an intense, organic music 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 and Noh Theater. Trombonist David Manson and clarinetist David Irwin join Tatsuya Nakatani for improvisations.
This event is sponsored by St. Petersburg College, EMIT and the City of St. Petersburg.
$5.00 general admission - tickets are only available at the door; Free for SPC students and staff with ID.
