Michel Doneda (France) has developed one of the most extensive musical vocabularies in free improvisation. A specialist of the soprano saxophone, his playing can be at turns lyrical, playful, or raucous, and can switch from the liveliness of street melodies to circular breathing, microscopic sounds, or shrieking outbursts.
Percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani (born in Osaka, Japan and currently based outside of Philadelphia), deftly wields his array of percussion instruments– including small metal bowls, gongs, broken cymbals, homemade bows, tom, and snare. Witnessing and listening to Tatsuya Nakatani hits on a number of intersecting sensory paths.
