Critics have praised Hallman's work. " is for acoustic instruments -- no computers, no electronic processing -- and it is music, long on harmonic and melodic interest and blessedly short on intellectual or mathematical gimmicks, without sounding overly neo-Romantic or derivative", wrote music critic Charles Downey of the Washington Post "Two pieces by Joseph Hallman singled him out as the one to watch, especially'Imagined Landscapes,' six atmospheric miniatures inspired by the nightmares of H. P. Lovecraft.
The use of whispers and other noises did not seem like a cheap effect but part of a musical whole, a complement to the composer’s skillful handling of each instrument," wrote Downey in a separate review. Of his "Three Hornik Poems" the critic Steve Smith stated in the New York Times "a buoyant song cycle by Mr. Hallman that must be heard". Ronni Reich of the Washington post wrote that Hallman's compositions are "reminiscent of Dominick Argento, contemporary soundscapes and Renaissance music."

Hocus Pocus Hall was a gothic-themed house of mirrors at Chessington World of Adventures Resort in southwest London, England. The site of several mansions dating back to 1348, Burnt Stub Mansion was a private feature for years, before opening as Hocus Pocus Hall in 2003, it closed in 2018 to be redeveloped as Room On The Broom: A Magical Journey. The mansion at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, today called Burnt Stub was built in 1348 in Chessington. In the English Civil War it became a royalist stronghold being razed by Oliver Cromwell's Parliamentary forces giving it its modern name. Hocus Pocus Hall is a 4-D walk through attraction that leads throughout the mansion, with no age restriction. Theming includes animatronics such as a wizard and goblins, as well as rotating hallways and 3D paintings, for which 3-D glasses could be worn until the 2017 season where these were removed; the attraction would begin inside the main hall of the building where you were greeted by a preshow involving a wizard and the troublesome goblins of the Hall before the room transformed before your eyes into a room full of goblins and eyes from every corner - the bookcase would move aside leading you through a library corridor and into a trommel tunnel.
After the tunnel you reach a generator room where goblins are causing all kinds of chaos in the form of animatronic statues and peppers ghost style projections. Guests throughout the scene are challenged to interact with buttons and pressure pads putting their hands in holes for a surprise or two. Guests were led across pressure pads in what looked like a garden scene before reaching the “farting chair” - a chair which farted when someone was to sit on it; the next scene was the wizards bedroom where guests witnessed the goblins interacting around the sleeping wizard. The floors were uneven as the attraction approached the finale, the mirror maze; the maze included a drop off point for the 3D glasses until their removal. The mirror maze themed around a garden hid a few surprises as guests would get more and more lost whilst being surprised by goblins appearing through the glass; the attraction ends at the end of the mirror maze just to the right of the manors entrance. During the park's 2013 Halloween event, the attraction had a makeover as “The Mystery of Hocus Pocus Hall”, featuring a new theme overlay and soundtrack.
It was announced in October 2018 that Hocus Pocus Hall would be redeveloped as Room On The Broom, based on the children's book by Julia Donaldson. Www.chessington.com/2019 Chessington World of Adventures Resort House of mirrors Official website
