A few weeks back percussion wizard Tatsuya Nakatani stopped by WFMU to record a set (interview from the session on the show archive page). Known for an unorthodox approach to the drum set, Tatsuya delivered a fully improvised 17-minute mindblower of bowed gongs, singing bowls, and scraping cymbals, which we present to you here in its entirety. Head over to Tatsuya's website for more information and tour details, and go see him if you have the chance. Nothing compares to seeing this man do his thing in the flesh.
