On December 19, the Lost Civilizations experimental music project returns to its residency at Dew Drop Inn DC (map) for an evening featuring a solo set by Leah Gage.
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); Leah Gage (drums); and Emily Chimiak (violin).
On December 1, Verses Records released “Code Red”, a compilation to benefit the American Civil Liberties Union. The release includes a solo basscello performance of Zook’s among the 40 featured artists/musicians/groups from 6 countries. It was done in 22 days following the election. Zook is performing at DC’s Logan Fringe Art Space on January 18 as part of a counter-inaugural event featuring “Code Red” performers.
