Tatsuya Nakatani (1970, Osaka) is a Japanese avant-garde sound artist and master percussionist. With his adapted Gong and handcrafted Kobo bow, Nakatani has developed his own unique instrumentation. A master of new sounds and extended technique; he sculpts a transformative, intense, expressive sound that engages improvised and experimental music while resisting genre. Central to his philosophy of sound is the concept of MA 間, which can be understood as the space or interval between perceptual events.

Arrington de Dionyso conjures Utopic Spaces with multiphonic vocal work & minimalist instrumentation. Trance punk, combining traditional ritual trance, electrified experimental approaches, dancehall rhythms, gamelan scales and mystically inspired Indonesian incantations.
