His Endorsement from Epoch Musical Instruments keeps Mykl’s keen interest in pushing the envelope with the latest technologies, to help bridge the gap with traditional stringed instruments and has made him a household name among Australia’s finest musicians. “The Star Attraction” CD series is Mykl’s latest brainchild. The album “SETI” is his most spectacular and dramatic production yet as the sheer power and intensity of emotion captures the listener instantly. Think Star Wars versus X-Files or even Alien as they all orbit together around Arthur C. Clarke’s monolith from 2001.
It’s a block buster film score but minus the film as Vol 1 was written specifically for the 40th anniversary of SETI and the 10th anniversary for SETI@Home Berkeley. It is a lasting tribute to the many researchers whose lives have changed the way we live, and how we view the expanding universe around us. The musical inspiration draws from such luminaries as Copernicus and Hubble. NASA, Apollo, and more.
It is dedicated to the great cosmologist Dr Carl Sagan and SETI astronomer Dr Frank Drake. A must have album for fans of science, modern film score and just about anyone who needs to get off the planet for an hour or so. You can really experience the dazzling and haunting textures in these superb cosmic masterpieces.
Vol 2 – “The Planet ZEN” – ZEN is the new funky trance album featuring spaced out themes and cool dance tracks with a few surprises in global cross genre, a full hour of original instrumentals.
Vol 3 – “The Girl from Andromeda Six” - here is a wonderful club lounge album. Over an hour of unique world, chill, and grooves makes this the perfect balance to the first two albums in the series. If you are into the music of café del mar and the like, you will really enjoy this album.
The Focus of Life and the Music inspired by SETI
An interview with the multi award winning violinist composer & producer – Mykl Lozin
“I was born in ’59 so I remember well the early days of the race to space. In fact the very first thing I do remember was my own SETI search as a small child. During those tender years I grew up reading every book I could find on space, science and the universe, whether I understood them or not. And then came Apollo, and it was the greatest boyhood dream unfolding before my eyes. We were there up in space, and we were about to land on the moon. I seriously wanted to be a part of it, I wanted to be Australia’s first astronaut, and I dreamt of moving to the US and working for NASA. Alas, it was not to be.

I remember I once stood in for Tommy Emmanuel in opening a Maton Guitar showcase and whilst soloing Keith Urban walks right up to the stage and asks me could he join in. Man, we brought the house down. The Violent Femmes invited me to join the band on a recent tour and that was amazing too. So naturally I love and I write and perform all styles of music. And being a classically trained musician I could even create a few of my own. So for many years now “the Star Attraction” music was pretty much all there. It was just waiting to be finished. I do admit that I had struggled for years to find an outlet for my particular way of writing as it defies most single syllable marketing genres.

I don’t write new age music as per se. I paint with sound what moves me the most and that is the cosmos. And it’s bigger than we can possibly imagine, and it’s dark out there, and just as blinding with Stella light. It’s downright scary and dangerous, but it’s our home. Even if we are just a “pale blue dot” to quote Carl Sagan on the vast oceans of space. So now here I am. 40 years have past and I am right back at the beginning again, reliving those dreams of SETI and Apollo.
I have never worked so hard and fast on such a large scale project in all my life. There’s over three hours of brand new and reworked instrumental music. Three separate and completely diverse albums to be finished on time so I can officially launch them on the 40th anniversary of the day when man first walked upon the moon. This is my tribute to all the lives, and the many lives lost. All the achievements, and to all the researchers whose dreams we shared as a human race in this grand exploration of space. I feel that it is through worldwide radio astronomy such as SETI, Hubble and others that science can bring in the real goodies.
