LFZ is the current musical endeavor of Sean Smith. Guitar is at the heart and synthesizers come into play at times, all manipulated by a vast array of analog and digital devices. The music is emotionally driven and rides the line between composition and improvisation. There is a deep experimentalism captured in the music of LFZ -all executed by tangible means. LFZ is exploratory of sights, sounds and the phenomenological.

The first album from LFZ is two extended pieces for guitar and electronics. As with all of Smith's work, the music is instrumental but refers heavily to personal subject matter and concepts. It was composed, improvised, and recorded at the end of a decade long residence in San Francisco, during a time of transition and deep self reflection around the death of his father. "Fair Winds & Following Seas," a multi-movement composition, is an abstract journey through the intangible phenomena of life and void, nature and spirit. The completely improvised b-side, "Infinite Regress," delves colder depths by way of repetition and random chaos. Both pieces, almost opposite in approach compliment each other to form a cohesive whole.
