Tatsuya Nakatani & Dave Farris

  • The Kentucky School 607 North Limestone Lexington, KY, 40508 United States (map)

Two Master Percussionists and Avant-Garde Pioneers:

Tatsuya Nakatani - mind-bending improvisation and earth-shattering bowed gongs

Dave Farris - the freshest, the funkiest, and the farthest-out

Each will perform a solo set, then the pair will collaborate to live score David Andree’s experimental video, "New Sight."

“Inspired by accounts of blind individuals gaining their sight later in life, the video work explores the interplay of light, shape, and movement as it fluctuates between abstraction and recognizable form.

Traditional lenses are not used in favor of exploring more direct manipulations of light. Using the body to focus light allows for the aperture to fluctuate in real time, allowing in more or less light, much like our own eyes do. This produces effects that are reminiscent of how it feels to open your eyes first thing in the morning or to squint at a bright light. Mirrors are used to redirect light, creating multiple viewpoints, and layers visuals in real time, further complicating the immediate comprehension of visual information."
