Nakatani Gong Orchestra
Thursday, November 21st, (7:30pm doors / 8:00pm performance)
CASP 5&J Gallery, 1106 5th Street ($10 cover)

The Nakatani Gong Orchestra (NGO) is a contemporary sound art project led by master percussionist and avant-garde sound artist and composer Tatsuya Nakatani. Beginning in 2011 with just four gongs, the NGO has grown to be comprised of up to seventeen gongs, loosely representing the vibrations of heavenly bodies--sun, moon, and the planets in the solar system--and activated with hand-carved Kobo Bows, mallets and other implements. Due to the size of the Orchestra and expected attendance, the performance will take place at the 5&J Gallery in downtown Lubbock, rather than at Longitudes' home at CO-OPt Research + Projects. The 5&J space has been generously donated by CASP for the evening's performance. Tickets for the event are $10 at the door on the night of the performance (but no one is turned away for lack of funds). This performance is co-sponsored by CO-OPt Research + Projects and Charles Adams Studio Project. Longitudes, an experimental music series curated by Andrew Weathers.


Reception Saturday, November 23rd, 5-8 PM; continues through January 4th
