"This CD/DVD set captures an extremely special evening for Larsen, one that places them in a perfect visual and musical perspective revealing more than a little about this enigmatic quartet from Torino Italy. For one night only, Larsen assembled their closest musical friends to play to a sold out crowd at the Teatro Colosseo in Torino. The purpose of the performance was to pay tribute to the work of Czech avant garde designer, typographer, founder of Devestil and cultural radicalist Karel Teige and his Abeceda -- a 1926 collaboration with poet Vitoslav Nezva which minimalized text down to its basic components establishing a poetic dialogue between text and images. To Abeceda, Larsen brings their minimalist beauty and melody with this live performance incorporating music, dance and projections. With Larsen are their close musical friends David Tibet (Current 93), Baby Dee (Current 93 member and acclaimed solo performer) and Johann Johannsson (Touch/4AD). The music swells in gentle pulses of softly stated melody. Emotion clings to each note while glistening shimmers of electronics dance quietly in the mix."
