Tatsuya Nakatani - [excerpt]

Although the local "jazz" festival is anticipated in some quarters, it seemed that too often there was no home there for adventurous and experimental creators. Thus, out of necessity, the TONE Festival was born to give these touring musicians a chance to connect with local audiences and artists. A collaboration between Burn Down the Capital's Tad Michalak, Ron Gaskin (a.k.a. Rough Idea) and Karen Ng and Daniel Pencer, the goal was to create shows that were rewarding for players and listeners alike. Tatsuya Nakatani's solo set followed the same sort of arc as he demonstrated last year, starting and ending with the hypnotic drone of bowed orchestral gongs. In between those vibrations there was a ceaseless array of in-the-moment inventiveness, creating swelling mountains and valleys that would be rocked by occasional sudden thunderbursts.
