Mohna has made a record about her childhood, or rather about childhood itself. Even though the title of the album alludes to the first ten years of Mohna’s life, 1985-1994 transcends the strictly autobiographical, with the 13 songs robbing us of the illusion that the early years in life are a fairly uncomplicated time.

The focal points of the music are Mohna’s fragile and maidenly voice and the piano, played with an undisguised simplicity. Gentle, whispered snapshots, which open up and become substantial through incorporating chamber music elements. The soundscape is formed by clarinet, double bass, violin and percussion just as much as by the mechanical ticktacking of the piano keys, the clanging of the strings and the creaking of the parquet floor.
