1.  Portrait Of Silence

2.  Horizon (Leo Zero’s Cinquante Quatre remix)

3.  Portrait Of Silence (Trabant’s Actual Jazz cover version)

4.  Horizon (Proviant Audio’s Retro Haze)

5.  Finally (Sandra Kolstad Winter Electric cover version)

Supporting Portrait Of Silence’s icy bad romance are: Leo Zero (Madonna, LDR) who’s brought out Horizon’s inner Studio 54 here; Trabant, from Norway, a free-ish jazz band who have covered Portrait here rather beautifully, Proviant Audio, who bring a twinkling narcotic strut to Horizon and finally Sandra Kolstad, a hip and much lauded Norwegian purveyor of electropop.
