"The virtuous string player Eugene Chadbourne and the ingenious synthesizer player Thomas Lehn met in the summer of 1999 to celebrate an impossible event: the confrontation of a banjo with an analogue EMS-synthesizer. Both know well, as if dreaming, how to move between material extension and its demolition in the best tradition of European improvised music and country songs, as only Chadbourne can recite them. As if they had never done anything else. It doesn't matter if they weave dense interactions and lump them into great noise or consciously go separate ways and seem to play without the other- their exchange is always direct, constantly the other knows the right answer. Spontaneous improvisation in full completion: C Inside actually documents the first meeting of these master musicians."
