"It happens without any further dramatic attention. You just realize that there isn’t an awful lot of love left in your heart."

”An impressive spoken word box: At no point am I in any doubt about the authenticity. This is true, serious, necessary. Almost shockingly indisputable … Inkubation is a spoken word work that will stand the distance in all thinkable ways.”

Gaffa – Ivan Rod (September 14, 2021)
(Denmark’s biggest music paper)

“The six tracks that make up the installation are some of the most relentlessly experimental from Hall’s hand in many years … a remarkable piece of sound art and good poetry from the experienced shape-shifter.”
Seismograf – Simon Heggum (September 9, 2021)
(Danish sound art magazine)

“A lyrically brave and sonically important work made in collaboration with Thomas Li … a rare and wonderfully bitter combo.”
Bongorama – Peter Solak (August 25, 2021)
(Danish connoisseur site)

Inkubation consists of six new pieces of writing and represents a consecutive exploration of character mutation – the story is a combined personality study and love story. The music on the release is produced by Thomas Li who during the years before the recording had been heavily involved with the electronic music scene in Tokyo. By the same token Japanese musician Kazutaka Kuroki makes a guest visit on Inkubation.

Martin Hall and Thomas Li have earlier produced the two Hall albums Random Hold (1996) and Adapter (1999) together.

Inkubation is released with support from Augustinus Fonden, Koda Kultur, MPO and Danish Arts Foundation.

”An impressive spoken word box: At no point am I in any doubt about the authenticity. This is true, serious, necessary. Almost shockingly indisputable … Inkubation is a spoken word work that will stand the distance in every way.”
