Contact email: t_a_zook@hotmail.com In the drifting, wordless space between wakefulness and sleep: music of lost civilizations. Echoes lingering long past their creation; reverberations seemingly without end. Unusual polyrhythms juxtaposed with polyphonies neither western nor eastern; music of civilizations long lost and forgotten -- and until now unheard. Propitiations to an ancient muse? Celebrations of forgotten feasts? No one knows: no physical traces remain; the only surviving legacy is sound -- and the imagery it inspires. As first described by Sir Francis Bacon in 1624: "We have also sound-houses, where we practise and demonstrate all sounds, and their generation. We have harmonies which you have not, of quarter-sounds, and lesser slides of sounds. Divers instruments of music likewise to you unknown, some sweeter than any you have, together with bells and rings that are dainty and sweet. We represent small sounds as great and deep; likewise great sounds extenuate and sharp; we make divers tremblings and warblings of sounds, which in their original are entire. We represent and imitate all articulate sounds and letters, and the voices and notes of beasts and birds. We have certain helps which set to the ear do further the hearing greatly. We have also divers strange and artificial echoes, reflecting the voice many times, and as it were tossing it: and some that give back the voice louder than it came, some shriller, and some deeper; yea, some rendering the voice differing in the letters or articulate sound from that they receive. We have also means to convey sounds in trunks and pipes, in strange lines and distances." .. (Source: Bacon, Francis, 1561-1626. Essays, civil and moral, and The new Atlantis, by Francis Bacon; http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/1627bacon-atlantis.html ). The Lost Civilizations experimental music project is a collaboration between Mike Sebastian (Tenor Sax, Saxello and Bass Clarinet) and T. A. Zook (BassCello and Misc. Instruments).
