Thomas Ulrik Larsen (picture:  Victor Mark Kruse)Many of you will recall Danish musician/rock nerd Thomas Ulrik Larsen touring Denmark at the start of the year, armed with his laptop, and a show full of photos, video snippets, sound clips, background history, anecdotes and musical analysis taking audiences on a two hour trip through Dark Side Of The Moon. The lectures proved really popular, as feedback we received testified.

"Last winter The Dark Side of The Moon was my topic, and I did 25 shows in Denmark. This autumn there will be more Dark Side lectures, but I'm also covering The Wall and even The Final Cut. There's a lot of interest from fans spanning three generations. Those who really want to get to the core of the matter, and for whom a tribute band show doesn't really tell the whole story."

Thomas covers the origin and history of the albums, musical analysis, interpretation, background stuff, and historical and sociological contexts. Thomas lectures at libraries, music venues, cinemas and at special gigs arranged in cooperation with Danish media. August and early September saw him lecturing three times on Dark Side, The Wall and The Final Cut respectively and the rest of the year is already planned:

October 24th: Sofiehøj Friskole (Sofiehoej Private School - The Wall)
October 30th: Lyngby Bibliotek (Lyngby Library – The Dark Side of The Moon)
November 4th.: Greve Bibliotek (Greve Library – The Dark Side of The Moon)
November 5th: Kolding Bibliotekerne (Kolding Library – The Dark Side of The Moon)
November 6th: Tobaksgården, Assens (Music venue - The Dark Side of The Moon)
November 7th: Aksen, Asnæs Bibliotek (Asnaes Library – The Dark Side of The Moon)
November 10th: Biografen i Stege (Stege Movie Theatre - The Wall)
November 12th: Pressen, Politikens Hus (hosted by Danish newspaper Politiken - The Wall)
November 21st: Horsens Bibliotek (Horsens Library – The Dark Side of The Moon)
December 22nd: Wiums Musik Salon (The Final Cut)

Thomas's new album under his alias Lysår (Light Year in Danish) is out now. It is called “Frontfigur på orlov” (Front Man on Leave), and it is available on iTunes.
