It’s more than an elitist aphorism: our knowledge grows when exposed to different cultures. Case in point: Trentemøller. It is because of his recent visit to Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club that at least one person — cough, cough — has learned how to type an “O with stroke“on an American keyboard. Similarly, this Danish artist’s numerous collaborations have undoubtedly increased the profile of a phalanx of indie musicians from all over the world.
On this evening, a solid crowd came together for an evening of electro-infused music. Not just for a hit song or two, but for that precious experience found only in the moments where composition meets performance amidst a community of compatriots. They didn’t come for a scene, but instead to tune in, engage, and ultimately emerge on the other side of the house lights with an evolved, personal understanding of humanity’s universally connective tissue: music.
