Saturday 10 September @ Outpost, 8pm $10 or b/o

Tatsuya Nakatani
Nakatani Gong Orchestra + Tatsuya Nakatani - solo percussion

N.G.O. Boston Crew:
Kevin Frenette
Joe Monteiro
Todd Burnel
Matt Samolis
Forbes Graham


The project will start off with five people performing on 5 gong kits (usually about 5-10 gongs will be set up on the stage, depending on the venue's situation and capacity).
In contrast with a solo percussion setting, where he is limited to two arms and two legs, this 5 person group is capable of simultaneously striking or bowing ten gongs.
Nakatani will be the ensemble's conductor.
Generally, the gongs will be bowed and softly struck with mallets to produce a comfortable sound level for all in the room.
No need for you to prepare ear plugs or afraid of loudness. Sound of N.G.O., is not typical GONG image as usually people have been hearing over the TV.
Audience and performer will experience a new world: the drone of deep space and inner relaxation.
The music of N.G.O. creates a metallic temple of deep harmonies, a beauty of spaces. The sounds are unlike any existent music categories.
An over 40-inch large gong creates extreme Lo-frequency wave forms.
These cross-vibrate with the tones of all the other gongs, and give us a sound ebbing from the deepest frequency pool, which can be very deeply felt in the body.

Sunday 11 September - 2-6pm, private rehearsal

Friday 16 September @ Outpost, 8pm $10 or b/o


Patrick Breiner - tenor sax, clarinet, voice (Easton, CT)
Aaron Darrell - bass, voice (Boston, MA)
Devin Drobka - drums (New York, NY)

Everybody's mother is somebody's daughter, brother. Dig? This trio of brilliant young improvisers delivers telepathy laced shang-a-lang that transcends its geographical limitations.

What began a year ago as a chordless jazz trio evolved into a three-headed improvising monster. Breiner, Darrell, and Drobka each contribute compositions ranging from wistful rubato ballades to reckless free jazz avalanches.

Sons Of Daughters features Berklee College of Music alums Devin Drobka and Aaron Darrell as well as New School for Jazz alum and John Coltrane Foundation scholarship winner Patrick Breiner.

The members of this trio have performed with Greg Osby, Jerry Bergonzi, Joe Lovano, Billy Hart, Michael Formanek, Dave Ballou, Becca Stevens, Dave Stryker, Ches Smith, George Garzone and Tony Malaby among others. They tour the east coast and midwest regularly playing concerts and teaching clinics and master classes to students of all ages. They have collectively graced the stages of Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, Skuller's Jazz Club, Yoshi's, the Kitano, Smalls Jazz Club, the JVC Jazz Festival, the Isthmus Jazz Festival, Milwaukee's East Side Jazz Fest, and many other stages across the US and in Europe.

Dr T presents Visual Music Live featuring
Doctor T - Video Improvisations
Tom Plsek - trombone
Eric Crawley - Harpejji and Electronics
Neil Leonard - Reeds

Each Musician will perform a duet with Doctor T. The duets will be followed by a quartet set.

I am an improvising video artist exploring the interaction between visuals and music. I work live with improvising musicians and do non-real-time studio improvisations using a variety of tactics to unify imagery and music. My video is derived from photographic and video sources, sometimes computer processed beyond recognition.

I treat my visual materials as sources for improvisation, much as a jazz musician uses melody and chord changes. I've been creating this work since 1970.

Visual Music LIVE is a monthly series featuring my video improvisations

Outpost feels like the last tree standing. I rehearsed there yesterday and was so in awe of the damn place that I kept circling around it as if it was the last tree standing in a post-apocalyptic world. People, support Outpost in anyway you can. Pimp yourself out. I don't care. Do whatchya gotta do, man.
