Courtesy of Dave Mann’s “DC Booking”, the Lost Civilizations experimental music project (http://www.soundclick.com/bands/lostcivilizations) has a “Third Tuesdays” residency at Dynasty Restaurant, 2210 14th Street, N.W.
In association with the Sonic CIrcuits DC experimental music organization (http://dc-soniccircuits.org/) the May 15 residency will feature the BSI+Pilesar duo, the Mercury Fools the Alchemist trio and the Lost Civilizations experimental music project.
Mercury Fools the Alchemist (http://www.myspace.com/mercuryfoolsthealchemist): unlikely music from trio of avant classical bass (Daniel Barbiero of Nine Strings, etc), ambient guitar (Rich Sheehe of Field Shaman, The Hypocrites), and homemade “stone age synthesizer” the springamajig (Jeff Bagato, aka Tone Ghosting). Sound colors from previously parallel planes suddenly collide and become acquainted, producing chimerical cacophony for mystical journeys.
The Lost Civilizations experimental music project is a duo comprised of Mike Sebastian (bass clarinet; tenor sax; saxello) and T. A. Zook (basscello). It began in 2008 and has featured guests such as Larry Gomez (Tabla, Cymbals, Misc. percussion), Louie Rozier (Flute; Percussion), Jerry Busher (percussion), Aaron Martin (Alto Sax, Soprano Sax), Emre Kartari (Percussion), Doug Kallmeyer (bass), Emily Chimiak (vocals) and Angela Morrish (vocals).
Performances by the Lost Civilizations experimental music project are totally unscored, unrehearsed and extemporaneously improvised on the spot. It has been described as:
“Combining atmospheric strings with Ayler-esque expression, this group provides a fundamentally different approach to improvisation, with a focus on mood, landscape, and intensity. ”
