Currently on tour through the US, Canada, and Europe, Tatsuya Nakatani and Michel Doneda, masterminds of percussion and soprano saxophonist, respectively, are bringing their improvisational jazz to First Existentialist Congregation. The estranged beauty of the duo's collaborations, captured on the concisely haunting White Stone Black Lamp LP, is best realized in the live setting, without constraints of time or format. Nakatani's succinctly sprawling percussive paths cover every part of his drum kit, often overflowing into stray noisemakers, chimes, bowls, and other ephemera. Doneda's sax provides unsettling, expressionistic melody and color that paint gleefully nightmarish scenes of free jazz. Atlanta's own purveyors of aural experimentation Victor Pons and Bradley Bailey each provide a set of their own sounds to open the night's performances.

Tatsuya Nakatani, Michel Doneda, Victor Pons and Bradley Bailey play First Existentialist Congregation on Friday, May 10. $7. 8 p.m. 470 Candler Park Dr. 404-226-6843.
