Tatsuya Nakatani, Ellingson

When: Sun., Oct. 1, 7-10 p.m. 2017

Percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani can make music with just about anything. Bells, bowls, pipes, even his own breath — the Japan-born, New York-based artist will use just about anything to construct his jazz-inflected, avant-garde soundscapes. (He uses regular drums, too, but like anything in Nakatani’s musical arsenal, he doesn’t employ them in ways you’d expect.) And, true to form, he doesn’t just stick to traditional music venues: Consider his self-described Gong Orchestra, a traveling art project for which Nakatani recruits different people for each performance and instructs them how to play gongs of various sizes. Spokane’s Object Space gallery, then, seems a perfect fit for Nakatani’s unique sensibilities.
