Eugene 'Doc Chad' Chadbourne and Tatsuya Nakatani will be performing in at least 13 cities on the east coast and Midwest USA in March and April, continuing their ongoing exploration of both classic country and western and radical free improvisation - more often than not conducted simultaneously.

EUGENE CHADBOURNE is a highly eclectic and unconventional American improviser, guitarist and banjoist. Chadbourne started out playing rock and roll guitar, but quickly grew bored with the form's conventions. He then studied other genres, including blues, country, bluegrass, free jazz, and noise - eventually synthesizing all those heterogeneous influences into a unique style of his own. Perhaps Chadbourne's most significant formative discovery was jazz; initially drawn to John Coltrane and Roland Kirk, he later became an acolyte of the avant excursions of Derek Bailey and Anthony Braxton. After releasing his 1976 debut, Solo Acoustic Guitar, he began collaborating on purely improvisational music with the visionary saxophonist John Zorn and the acclaimed guitarist Henry Kaiser. Quickly, Chadbourne carved out a singular style, comprised of equal parts protest music, free improvisation, and avant-garde jazz, topped off with his absurd, squeaky vocals. A complete list of Chadbourne's countless subsequent collaborations and genre workouts is far too lengthy and detailed to exhaustively document. In the 80's, Chadbourne turned to his own idiosyncratic brand of country and folk, accurately dubbed LSD C&W on a 1987 release. In addition, he has recorded with artists ranging from Fred Frith and Elliott Sharp to Evan Johns and Jimmy Carl Black, the original drummer in the Mothers of Invention; in between, he continued exploring unique styles inspired by music from the four corners of the globe, all the while issuing a seemingly innumerable string of records, most of them on his own Parachute label.

TATSUYA NAKATANI, of Japanese descent but now a U.S. citizen living in Pennsylvania, is known for his unique solo percussion shows often presented on epic cross-country tours. He has created his own instrumentation, effectively inventing many instruments and extended techniques. He utilizes drumset, bowed gongs, cymbals, singing bowls, metal objects, bells, and various sticks and bows to create an intense, organic music that defies category or genre. His music is based in improvised/ experimental music, jazz, free jazz, rock, and noise, yet retains the sense of space and beauty found in traditional Japanese folk music.

In addition to live solo and ensemble performances he works as a sound designer for film and television. He also teaches Masterclasses and Workshops at the University level. He also heads H&H Production, an independent record label and recording studio based in Easton, Pennsylvania. Tatsuya has performed everywhere from super high-brow art institutions and festivals to DIY art spaces like All Go Signs, and is one of the best percussionists alive on the planet earth.

TREPANNING TRIO is a Northeast Ohio-based avant-chamber experimento-acoustic ensemble which performs and records using only classical, traditional and handmade instruments (i.e., viola da gamba, kalimba, guzheng, pan lids screwed onto sticks and played with violin bows, etc).

Since its unofficial formation in 1998, this ensemble has assembled an unlikely rogues' gallery of composers, artists, writers and ethnomusicologists. Contrary to its name, Trepanning Trio typically performs with a rotating lineup of six to twelve musicians. Despite their diverse backgrounds, they bring hundreds of years of experience to bear on a repertoire forged by a shared passion for sound, texture, rhythm, melody and experimentation.

The band's name derives from the surgical procedure in which a hole is drilled into the human skull. Cave paintings suggest that people once trepanned the skulls of the living in order to let evil spirits escape, thereby curing seizures, migraines, and mental disorders.
