Improvisor/composer Kenta Nagai presents shimmering ( ), as part of an on-going aural contemplation of risk, tension and human nature. Known for expressive performances on fretless guitar, Nagai will explore the sounds of microphone feedback-controlling pitch with his hands and orchestrating distinct timbres with footpedals and digital controls. Gesture unfolds to expose beauty or violence or something not yet known. Multiple voices of electronic feedback render emotional terrain with a sensitive, uncontrollable grace.
