Several weeks ago Tatsuya Nakatani toured though Gainesville and performed at the Church of Holy Colors for an Action Research's 82nd show. I was able to capture the full performance.
Tatsuya Nakatani is a contemporary percussionist, originally from Osaka, Japan. He performs creative music around the world.
He has created a totally unique sound which defies category or genre. He utilizes the drum set, bowed gongs, cymbals, singing bowls
and metal objects. (source: www.HHPRODUCTION.ORG)
Nakatani allowed some Church of Holy Colors patrons use his gongs. Below is the audio of their improvisational gong peformance featuring Felici Asteinza, John David Eriksen, Charles Rye, Mark McGee, Zach Randall, and Shara Lunon

Melbourne based Mini Prophets just released a four song EP entitled S/T: 3. Last time I saw them perform, Brian Bo from the band had begun incorporating rhodes through a chain of pedals and vibraphone to the instrumentation. These recording capture that, while leaving out the saxophone which had been a prominent element to Mini Prophets up until now.
If you haven't heard it yet, check out the Sirens, Loops and Whistles tape released by Sunshine Ltd.
