Lewis and Clarke – Lewis & Clarke is the nom de plume of Lou Rogai and collaborators. The moniker has been described as metaphor for journey on many levels; musical, spiritual, and physical. Rogai is quoted by Daytrotter.com describing the project as “a vessel crafted for many, but operable alone if need be.” The name is also a reference to the fellowship and correspondence between C.S. Lewis and Arthur C. Clarke. Rogai is credited as composer/musician/songwriter as well as founder of La Société Expéditionnaire, an artist-based cooperative record label dedicated to exposing the wild and/or fragile music of colleagues.
