inside/outside is the duo of Russell Leach and Don Campau from Santa Rosa, California.
We have done four albums before this one with just us two and occasionally singer, Robin O’Brien. For this project we thought it might be interesting to have other improvisers play over some tracks we had specially recorded for each of them. The results were surprising and very eclectic. To finish it off and make it more in the spirit of our previous albums we edited the tracks into one long suite and added some additional recording and mixing effects. The tracks are also individually indexed for easier access to a specific area.

We have also made the original, returned, collaboration tracks available here:

So, this is not a “compilation” but a compositional suite. We would like to thank all of the collaborators for their time, talent, understanding and energy in this ambitious project.
Throughout this album Russell played most of the percussion but also plays moog and various other instruments. Don handled the bass, guitar, field recordings, engineering and assorted other things.

Track Name: Room 5 "A Lark In The Maze " with Amy Denio
Melancholiaalla, brava forte fronte che fai (to the smart strong front that you make)
A touch of sadness,Put the best front forth, Sharpen the blades and bite
The dark days beget the lighter time, A spindly stick grows from starkness to bloom
A lark in the maze might bring a Minotaur, Laze in the labyrinth ~
or go beyond what you assume
