“Inside/Outside is a collaborative journey of the outer and inner worlds of the voice in relation to the instruments (Viola da gamba, tenor recorder, dan tranh and Vietnamese percussion). The piece traverses states of calm, agitation, happiness and sadness and culminate in the symbiosis and reconciliation through the breath of both voice and the recorder”-- Ros Bandt.

“Life is nurtured and maintained by cycles of breaths. Each conveys and/or conceals various feelings and emotional states. At a certain moment, a breath may carry contradictory feelings such as love and hate, calm and anger, sadness and happiness. These feelings are flowing within the inner and outer voices. Inside/Outside is a musical exploration of the inner and outer emotional gestures of the voice in an instrumental landscape that transcends the boundaries of East and West” --Dang Kim Hien.
