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), Fugazi's Jerry Busher (percussion), Aaron Martin (Alto Sax, Soprano Sax), Emre Kartari (Percussion), Doug Kallmeyer (bass) 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. "
