Percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani (pictured) is coming back to St. Louis to perform at 8:00 p.m. next Wednesday, April 13 at the Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center.

Nakatani was here most recently in November 2010 at LNAC, playing solo and in small groups with local improvisers. This time, he'll team up with some St. Louis musicians (still being confirmed, according to LNAC's Tom Hill) to form what's being called a “Gong Orchestra." Exactly how many gongs this will entail is unclear as of this writing, but presumably, to paraphrase the playwright David Mamet, the operative concept is “lots and lots. “

Nakatani also will present a workshop on improvisation and extended percussion techniques at 4:30 p.m. that afternoon at LNAC. The workshop is free and open to the public; admission to the performance is $5 at the door.
