He has been residing in the USA since 1994 and is currently based in Easton, PA.Since the late 1990s, Mr. Nakatani has released over sixty recordings in the USA and Europe and has performed countless solo percussion concerts through intensive touring. He has also collaborated with hundreds of other artists internationally and presented masterclasses, workshops and lectures across the USA and around the world.

He creates sound via both traditional and extended percussion techniques… which manifest in an intense and organic music that represents a very personal sonic world.

Todd Campbell

Todd received his training in classical percussion at West Virginia University, studying with Phil Faini and Dave Satterfield. While at WVU in the mid 90’s, Todd took lessons in electronic music and FM synthesis with Gil Trythall – lessons and experiences that still inform his music today. In 2008, Todd embarked on a quest to release ten solo album-length recordings in ten years. Six years and six releases later, Todd is finding an innovative and critically-acclaimed compositional voice utilizing electro-acoustic percussion, guitar, and hardware synths and effects, combined with many years spent as a touring rock drummer. Todd’s solo performances invite you to experience a predictably unpredictable foray into a sonic bricolage, incorporating masterful drumming and avant-whacked synth wizardry that holds a curious treat somewhere in the depths. Currently, Todd is assistant professor of music at Bloomsburg University, and is completing his dissertation.

John Collinge of Progression Magazine rated Campbell’s 2010 release “Translation” 12 out of 12 stars, observing that Todd’s “prolific and complex contributions on drums, cymbals and percussion lend depth and resonance to his incredible array of electronic applications,” creating “uncharted forays into sonic alchemy that probably surprised their creator as much as the listener.” John Patrick reviewed Todd’s 2011 release “Pathology,” noting that he “sounds like Sandy Nelson, Mitch Mitchell, and Art Blakey touring Sandoz laboratory, imbibing the product, then being turned loose in a studio full of synthesizers, plus acoustic and triggered percussion!”
