Saxophonist, composer Rent Romus started the Lords of Outland in 1994 a collective of like-minded musicians focusing on exploring improvisation, melody, noise, and sound art while acknowledging their jazz, rock, and blues roots. The group has developed original music ranging from unhinged free improvisation to thematic compositional suites inspired by abstract and socio-political poetry, science fiction, horror, and fantasy.

Collette McCaslin - trumpet, no-input pedal electronics
Philip Everett - drums, percussion, electronic autoharp
• Ray Schaeffer - electric basses
Rent Romus - alto, soprano, c-melody saxophones, voice, electronics, toys
