The album combines both the live recording of the first ever Larsen & Z''ev In V.Tro live performances with extreme aural-mixes by Z''ev of Larsen''s In V.Tro studio sessions.

Larsen and Z''ev In V.tro is a soundtrack for micro-cinematic images that document the studies on cells of the Istituto di Anatomia Umana Normale (Basic Human Anatomy Institute), between 1935 and1985. Visuals are from a studio by professors Dario Cantino and Antonio Barasa, teachers of these Scientific Institutes. By browsing great quantities of original footage on films kept in the local University with a scientific and reasoned view, Cantino and Barasa wanted to go back over the stages of history and techniques of in vitro cultures and their documented shootings, to pay tribute to the Maestro of anatomical discipline, professor Giuseppe Levi. Not only professor Levi had the intuition of the great potential of the in vitro studies of cells, using the technique developed by american zoologist Ross G. Harrison, he also enforced his studies on cells with cinema techniques, using single frames taken by optical microscope edited and sped up, obtaining a cinematic footage.

These exceptionals scientific documents still represent today a useful tool for studies and researches in a lot of medical branches like Cellular Biology, Histology and Microscopic Anatomy.

Larsen and Z''ev were waiting for the right concept to work together on combining Larsen''s soundscaping to Z''ev''s esoteric approach to rhythm and percussions and the chance of having access to these rare footages gave them the perfect context to apply their naturally cinematic and cellural music to, reproducing this way lab sperimentation and biological procedures to create life outside a living organism with the use of introspective and minimal, but richly arranged, semi improvised sounds and textures.
