Artist: NAKATANI, TATSUYA
Title: Confirmation
Format: LP
Label: Taiga
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"200-gram opaque red virgin-compound LP housed in a custom heavyweight yellow paper jacket with silver and metallic black foil stamping made at Studio on Fire in Minneapolis. Edition of 430. Nomadic percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani travels worldwide, his performances blooming with ceaseless expanse. Although Nakatani is a valiant collaborator, joining with other musicians, dancers, filmmakers, and beyond, solo percussion is the root of it all. Simply stated in Nakatanis own words, this album is "Confirmation of all of my acoustic solo percussion performance since 1998. Recorded live at Nakatani-kobo in Easton Pennsylvania USA during snow season of beginning of 2015. No overdubbing and used the fewest effects possible on this LP." Confirmation is Nakatanis third release on Taiga. The label initially saw the vibrant color of his collaboration with Mary Halvorson and Reuben Radding as MAP on Fever Dream (TAIGA 009LP, 2010). This was followed by Nakatani Gong Orchestra (2012), a woven blend of heavy vibrations from Nakatanis one-off group experiments on the road. Now theres number three, solo percussion, the foundation of his practice, charged with thunders, screams, sparks, and countless other ineffable sonic textures. Mastered by James Plotkin and cut direct to copper, Confirmation is Nakatanis first solo percussion album to be released on LP." - Taiga.

Artist: NAKATANI, TATSUYA
Title: Nakatani Gong Orchestra
Format: LP
Label: Taiga
Country: USA
Price: $23.00
"Perpetually rolling, Japanese-American master percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani holds a relentless schedule, road-bound in continuous dedication to his passion. His solo sets thunder with coaxed nuances from his kit, overlaid in staggering bounty. Nakatani is also fearless when it comes to collaboration, and seeks it out adventurously during his extensive tours. In this spirit of combined efforts, Nakatani Gong Orchestra shines a different light in each new location it arises. Nakatani has been packing his van with gongs and his handmade bows, mallets and surrounding instruments throughout 2011 and 2012. Each stop offers a new set of five or six players who have a brief technique workshop and practice with Nakatani before performing fresh to a live audience. Encompassing a wide range of different backgrounds and experience, each performance results in vastly different soundscapes. Many of these Nakatani Gong Orchestra rituals have been recorded, highlights from which have been extracted and compiled seamlessly for this LP. Recorded 2011 and 2012 in Easton PA, Oberlin OH, Philadelphia PA, Kansas City KS, Richmond VA and Toledo OH, the Nakatani Gong Orchestra LP was mastered by James Plotkin, cut direct to metal and pressed on 200 gram virgin vinyl. An edition of 800, the record is packaged in a hand-numbered Stoughton tip-on jacket wrapped with black paper and printed with metallic ink." - Taiga.
