Duo Exchange with the Lost Civilizations Experimental Music Project and Utenzil

On March 20, 2016, the Duo Exchange poetry project will appear with the Lost Civilizations experimental music project and Utenzil in the Tap Room of the Black Squirrel, which is located at 2427 18th St NW, Washington, DC 20009. The performance is free and open to all ages.

The Lost Civilizations experimental music project is a collaboration between Mike Sebastian (tenor sax, saxello and baritone sax) and T. A. Zook (basscello). Although essentially a duo, when schedules permit, it is joined by Jerry Busher (drums); Doug Kallmeyer (bass and electronics), Sam Lohman (drums) Larry Gomez (percussion), Patrick Whitehead (flügelhorn and trumpet) and Emily Chimiak (violin). At this performance, Sam Lohman will be accompanying the Lost Civilizations experimental music project on drums and Patrick Whitehead will be accompanying on flügelhorn and trumpet.

The Duo Exchange poetry project consists of Rod Smith and Dan Gutstein, both towering figures in American poetry:

​Rod Smith is the author of Deed, and several other collections of poetry, and is the publisher of Edge Books. He has taught at a number of colleges and was visiting writer at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop in 2010. He is editing, along with two other writers, The Selected Letters of Robert Creeley. Rod is the manager of Bridge Street Books in Georgetown.

​Dan Gutstein is the author of two books – non/fiction and Bloodcoal & Honey – as well as stories and poems that have appeared in 100 magazines and anthologies, including Ploughshares, American Scholar, Prairie Schooner, Best American Poetry, and The Penguin Book of the Sonnet. He has taught writing at the University of Michigan, George Washington University, The Corcoran College of Art and Design, The Smithsonian, and The Writer’s Center, among other institutions. He lives in Washington, D.C.

​Utenzil is the solo project of Michael McMorris, which brings together fitful decades of musical experience/experiments plus software, laptops, mixer and instruments which include various controllers, a DIY double neck midi guitar, live guitar and voice.
