Tatsuya Nakatani w/ special guests Ipek Eginli and Naan Violence at eyedrum

August 24 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Join us for a gripping performance by Tatsuya Nakatani, the internationally acclaimed percussionist known for his unique use of bowed gongs. He has spent decades refining his sound as an arrangement of formations of vibrations, incorporated in shimmering layers of silence and texture. You do not want to miss this intimate show at our gallery space!

Tatsuya Nakatani

Tatsuya Nakatani is an avant-garde percussionist, composer, and sound artist known for his innovative approach to music. Since the 1990s, he has released over 80 recordings and performs over 150 concerts a year worldwide. Nakatani’s primary focus is his solo work and the Nakatani Gong Orchestra. He teaches master classes and lectures globally, combining new music, improvisation, and experimental sound. His distinctive music features his adapted bowed gong, drums, cymbals, and singing bowls, creating an array of shimmering layers of silence and texture. Nakatani’s work retains the formal elegance and space (ma) felt in traditional Japanese music.

Ipek Eginli

A native of Turkey, Ipek Eginli is an experimental artist specializing in electroacoustic improvisation on piano, voice, and modular synthesizers. With a background in contemporary classical music, she has performed internationally for over two decades. Recently, she received the Reiser Atlanta Artists Lab grant for her multimedia project “Hold on To Your Names.” Eginli is the founder and director of a piano academy in north Atlanta and holds a doctoral degree in piano performance from the University of Georgia.

Naan Violence

Led by Arjun Kulharya from Atlanta, GA, Naan Violence offers transcendental free sitar music enriched with analog synthesizers, acoustic guitars, flute, and tabla. Their expansive sonic palette is both organic and untethered, drawing spiritual and cosmic connections to Sun Ra, Ravi/Ananda Shankar, and contemporaries like Bitchin Bajas.

Join us for a truly engaging evening of avant-garde and experimental music at eyedrum art & music gallery!
