Pictorial Review: Trentemøller at 9:30 Club

Share this post

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.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
