On January 24, 2015, The Lost Civilizations experimental music project will appear with drummer Jerry Busher and bassist Doug Kallmeyer on a Sonic Circuits bill hosted by Silver Spring’s Pyramid Atlantic Art Center. The bill will also include Battle Trance and PraxisCat .
Battle Trance had an auspicious inception. One morning,
Travis Laplante (Little Women and a trio with bassist Trevor Dunn and drummer Ches Smith) literally awoke with the crystal clear vision that he needed to start an ensemble with three specific individuals Matthew Nelson, Jeremy Viner, and Patrick Breiner. Laplante was actually unfamiliar with their work as musicians and had only a minimal relationship with them as individuals. He was also aware that a band of four tenor saxophones could be the worst idea ever. In spite of this, Laplante followed through and contacted Nelson, Viner, and Breiner. He gave them very little information beyond his morning experience. But no one hesitated – the ensemble formed that evening.
Playing modular synthesizers, as well as guitar, Christine Paluch (PraxisCat) improvises deconstructed atmospheres and loops interlaced with both beauty and anxiety.
Lost Civilizations experimental music project
The Lost Civilizations experimental music project is a collaboration between Mike Sebastian (Tenor Sax, Saxello and Baritone Sax) and T. A. Zook (BassCello) that began performing in 2008. Although it is essentially a duo and performs most frequently as such, it often features guest performers. When complex schedules permit, it now performs with Doug Kallmeyer on bass and electronics, Jerry Busher on percussion and electronics, Emily Chimiak on vocals and violin, and Patrick Whitehead on Flügelhorn and Trumpet. On January 24, Jerry Busher (drums) and Doug Kallmeyer (bass) will be performing with the Lost Civilizations experimental music project
