The Lost Civilizations experimental music project (http://bit.ly/shMNfN; http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/8852179) is a collaboration between Mike Sebastian (virtuoso tenor sax, saxello and bass clarinet) and T. A. Zook (basscello, lap steel guitar, KORG Monotron Analogue Synthesizer and misc. instruments) — and it frequently includes guest performers. When schedules permit, it now perform with Doug Kallmeyer on bass and electronics ) and Fugazi’s Jerry Busher on percussion and electronics. The Project began performing as a duo in the summer of 2008.
The Project’s performances are totally unscored, unrehearsed and extemporaneously improvised on the spot, so no two performances are identical. Its music is unique; 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.”
The Project is performing on Sept. 18 at Dynasty Ethiopian Restaurant on 14th Street (details: http://upcoming.yahoo.com/event/9661989/) — it’s totally free; no cover, no minimum).
Following a recent performance, an audience member asked what the music’s genre was; another audience member enthusiastically replied: “post everything!”
Examples of the music that comes through the Project — all unscored, unrehearsed and improvised extemporaneously on the spot:

The Foreign Resort
Sonically expressive, dark and moody, catchy and up-beat are words to describe this Danish Nu Gaze/Noise-pop foursome.
Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark, The Foreign Resort intricately balances an international sound with songs that instill contradictory feelings of melancholy and bliss. The band takes the audience on a journey through passages of textured layers with haunting and dreamy vocals, to echoes and pulsations of overdriven guitars, powerful drumming, driving bass, and intense thematic melodic lines. The end result is an aural rollercoaster of emotional intensity.
Listen and watch and decide for yourself..
