Music from Matti Bye & The Panoptikon Orchestra's succesful ciné-concert with the pabst classic, arranged and recorded especially for this album.

All the inventiveness and lyricism of the panoptikon orchestra can be found on this album.

Transcendentally light, romantic and mystical, this record blends dark and automated waltzes with tangos on felt pads, a grand piano on the dole, a butcher's mandolin and greta's own floating, fleeting dance tune.

One moment a traditional trio of accordeon, violin, and mandolin, the next a living sound effect box with makeshift junkyard instruments.

One moment the music is a shy, romantic tango, the next a dark deep sea soundscape.
