Additional info2012 Danish Panoptikon LP - 9-tracks - new Martin Hall songs performed by the mezzo-soprano Andrea Pellegrini and the classical pianist Tanja Zapolski.

"The production is based on a series of piano-based hybrid lieder, a collection of songs all characterized by a high degree of sombre drama... The songs are probably best described as passionate objections against the cultural imperatives of our times and culture and in particular the standardised parameters of desire. All in all the album contains some of Martin Hall's most exuberant lyrical work ever."*
