Happy 2020 to everyone!!
If anyone is curious about where I’m coming from, please check out this beautiful documentary by Janus Køster-Rasmussen about my home town and the music education that a few legendary pioneers started there in the 1970s.
I feel strongly about this story, to the point that I spent the time doing the english subtitles myself to be able to share it with people outside of Denmark.
It’s important to me, because it’s a big part of my own story. I would never have become a musician without the people in this film.
I also think it’s important because it carries some important lessons about approaching music in a collective way that makes it better and more fun for everyone.
But most importantly, because it contains some essential truths about the central place music has in human existence and why it’s important to nurture it through education.
Like Astrid Elbek says in the film, it’s a basic ingredient for a meaningful life on a personal level, and for a meaningful society on a larger level.
