Eugene Chadbourne + Tatsuya Nakatani

Eugene Chadbourne, guitar + banjo
Tatsuya Nakatani, percussion

Ars Nova Workshop is excited to present this special duo performance with guitarist and banjoist Eugene Chadbourne and percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani.  These two sonic adventurers have been working together since 2007, merging their diverse musical languages to create a unique world of cosmopolitan sound.

Guitarist and banjoist Eugene Chadbourne has been fusing experimental rock, bluegrass, free jazz, blues and noise since he began making music in the mid-1970s.  Equally inspired by the sounds of Appalachia, Jimi Hendrix, John Coltrane, and Captain Beefheart, he has formulated a musical language and category of his own.  Over the years he has worked with John Zorn, Henry Kaiser, Fred Frith, Derek Bailey, Han Bennink, Sun City Girls, Aki Takase, and many other leading experimental musicians. Originally from Osaka, Japan but currently living in Eaton, PA, Tatsuya Nakatani has articulated his own percussive style that combines free jazz, rock, noise and traditional Japanese folk music.  In order to capture this vast aural landscape, his drum kit is supplemented with gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, bells, and metal objects.  He has released over 50 recordings, and his recent releases include his Map project with guitarist Mary Halvorson and bassist Reuben Radding which released an album in 2010 called Fever Dream on Taiga, a solo album titled Abiogenesis on his HH Productions imprint, and a duo release titled Essences with trumpeter Forbes Graham on Blaq Lghtn.
