Makoto Kawabata & Tatsuya Nakatani

Makoto Kawabata, el. guitar
Tatsuya Nakatani, percussion

Ars Nova Workshop is pleased to present a mind-expanding evening of music featuring the duo of Acid Mothers Temple founder Makoto Kawabata and percussionist/sound artist Tatsuya Nakatani.

For nearly 40 years, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Makoto Kawabata has melted ears and altered states with his expansive, edge-walking take on psychedelic rock. He’s best known as the founding member of legendary Japanese psych unit Acid Mothers Temple and the Melting Paraiso U.F.O., though he’s worked with a variety of outrageous ensembles including Mainliner, Musica Transonic and Zubi Zuva X.

Tatsuya Nakatani is a creative artist and percussionist originally from Osaka, Japan who has released over sixty recordings in North America and Europe. Residing in the USA since 1994, his latest project is the Nakatani Gong Orchestra, which builds community ensembles performing on multiple bowed gongs under his direction. 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.
