On October 8, 2012 Arlington Virginia's Galaxy Hut presents [Loop 2.4.3]‘s electric New York
Percussion Duo in a special touring performance that brings together classical music and fine
art with Americana, roots music, and electronic mediums. The music is largely from the highly
acclaimed 2012 release American Dreamland, and the images are by NYC painter Jon Waldo.
This Arlington appearance is a continued collaboration with Lost Civilizations, and the two
groups’ second appearance at Galaxy Hut, famed for its live music and craft beer. Monday,
October 8, 2012, 9 p.m. at Galaxy Hut, 2711 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, VA 22201. $5 admission at
the door. Information at[masked]-5243.
Over the last 8 years [Loop 2.4.3]‘s New York Percussion Duo has toured the country,
developing its own brand of percussion-based music, sometimes adding voice, electronics,
keyboards and strings. Their performance at Galaxy Hut will consist mainly of music from their
newly-released 3rd album, and will showcase the steel drum, marimba, Native American flute,
and two instruments of their own invention: the Rose Echo, and the Elog (electronic log drum).
[Loop 2.4.3]’s much lauded live performances have earned responses such as “fascinating”,
“richly detailed”, “hypnotic” (Time Out New York), “mesmerizing” and “stunning” (Time Out
Chicago), “Transportive” (the Boston Phoenix), and in a nod to their originality, NPR’s Fresh Air
said that “it all sounds like part of a well-thought-out tradition. Only the tradition has never
existed until now.”
Copies of the new album will be available on CD and 12” vinyl, as well as posters and T-shirts
featuring Waldo’s colorful artwork.
Veteran performers/composers T.A. Zook and Mike Sebastian create immediately enjoyable, yet
endlessly complex soundscapes that seem to conjure a hyper-advanced, yet ancient parallel
dimension. The duo regularly feature top improvisers in the greater DC area to compliment their
electric strings, saxophone, and various loopers and effects.

Performances by the Lost Civilizations experimental music project are totally unscored, unrehearsed and extemporaneously improvised on the spot; no two performances are identical. 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. "
