Anders Trentemøller has succeeded at a task many musicians aspire to accomplish, yet fail to achieve: Since his debut in 2006, the Danish musician and producer has managed to craft his own unique niche sound, fusing electronic with post-punk, krautrock, and indie-rock (plus some shimmering nuances of classical music and subtle traces of jazz) in a most elegant, tasteful, and harmonious way. His dexterous and exquisite production not only caught the attention of the film world (his music has been used by Oliver Stone in Savages, by Pedro Almodóvar in The Skin I Live In, and by Jacques Audiard in Rust & Bone), but also won him fans within his own industry, evidenced by recent collaborations with Low, Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead, Sune Wagner of The Raveonettes, Jana Hunter of Lower Dens, and Jonny Pierce from The Drums, amongst others. Listening to his music is an immensely pleasurable experience in and of itself, but his live show goes beyond what one would expect from an electronic act. Joined by a live band, Trentemøller puts on a stimulating sensory spectacle that sees him translating and transposing his intricate sounds into an exuberant and viscerally charged audiovisual experience that transcends pretty much every other standard live music performance.
