Released originally on Hal McGee’s Haltapes label on CDR and cassette, this album is now available from Lonely Whistle Music.
This instrumental foray delves generally into the experimental category with guitar as the primary sound source.This album is dedicated to my late brother, Chris Campau, who appears on two tracks.
Thanks to Hal for requesting this and giving me the inspiration.
Hard copies available from me ( Hal has discontinued all hard copies from his label) and download from band camp
On May 26, 2015 Russ Stedman ( Sioux Falls, SD ) and Dino DiMuro ( Los Angeles) visited Don Campau in Santa Rosa. We jammed in the garage and recorded the results which Dino later edited and mixed.
This was all recorded live with no overdubs. Russ and Dino wailed on electric guitars while Don pumped out the rhythms and bass with the auto keyboard presets, sang and played some bass and lead guitar as well.
This is available for download only. There will be no hard copies unless someone specifically requests one.
In this satiric opera suite, Campau assumes the role of your new life coach helping you to manifest your true potential…as long as you pay him. This album includes free improvisation, ambient, computer funk, dub, Mantovani and lounge influences.
Guest appearances by Robin O’Brien ( supporting vocals) and Arzathon ( backing dub tracks on #6) with full lyric sheet and handmade cover on special paper.
Trades are acceptable but write first.

Numbra is the trio of Eric Hausmann ( Portland ), James Hill ( Richmond, CA ) and Don Campau ( Santa Rosa CA ). “Vol 1 Alloys” is the first release by this group. Mining ambient and experimental territory, Hausmann and Campau create shadowy backing tracks over which James Hill plays his trumpet.

While doing post production work in 2014 on our previous album, “Rooms” Russell Leach and I recorded several pieces expressly for my radio show, “No Pigeonholes EXP” broadcast by KOWS in Northern California.
(listen to this program of experimental music) .We have put these pieces together as CD one on our latest release.
On CD two we recorded a brand new suite in our usual style of free improvisation, beats and odd textures. So, CD 2 is called ‘territory” and became the title of the album as a whole. As usual, we have indexed this album into separate pieces although it is meant to be played as a full piece. Russell generally plays percussion and Don does electronics although we both play a variety of different instruments.
The cover is handmade on fully recycled cardboard and each one has different art work enclosed.
Recorded during sessions for Dino’s “50” double album, these 20 short songs give an inside look at his process and development when recording an album. Not really “outtakes” by other people’s standards but for various reasons did not make the cut for his powerful and personal “50” album.
