Tatsuya Nakatani 
is a Japanese avant garde percussionist and acoustic sound artist. Based in the United States, he has released over 80 recordings in the last two decades and tours extensively.

Nakatani has developed his own unique instrumentation, creating new sounds and extended techniques. Utilizing gongs, drums, cymbals, singing bowls, his breath, wooden sticks, metal objects, and the idiosyncratic bows and mallets he handcrafts in his workshop; he sculpts an intense, intuitively primitive, expressive sound form that defies genre. His work engages improvised-experimental music and movement, while still retaining the traditional sense of space, depth and deep time found in Japanese art.

Crowmeat Bob has been performing in bands and improvised ensembles for over twenty years on various instruments. These days he focuses on reeds and guitar, as well as composing for different outfits. He’s performed in improvised collaboration with Tashi Dorji, Jeb Bishop, Tatsuya Nakatani, Eugene Chadbourne, Thurston Moore, Quintron, Chuck Johnson, and many, many others. Projects that he’s been closely involved with include Reflex Arc, Enemy Waves, Savage Knights, D-Town Brass, Bloodworth, and many others. He’s also performed as a side-arm with Syl Johnson, Dexter Romweber, Hiss Golden Messenger, The Love Language, and many, many others. His bass clarinet sounds accompany the character of Kenny Powers as he becomes unhinged in the beginning of season 4 of ‘Eastbound and Down’.
