Confrontation. Long into the performance, this word kept echoing in my head. To confront the most uncomfortable realities, to question what makes us who we are, to face our vulnerabilities – that’s something we should do more of, I thought. And then, it dawned on me. Isn’t that what music is about? Isn’t making, playing or listening to music one of the most natural catalyst for reflection on all things human? Ever since I’d started paying attention to music, as a kid, when I was listening with the same sense of wonder to Chopin or Kanye West (still do), I had this question I couldn’t really answer: “Why does music matter?” Well, that early summer evening, Arvid and Lars helped me find it. Music is vital because it makes us reconcile our fears and celebrate our fragility. Music is confrontation.

This review was written with the help of Miruna’s rigorous notes and refreshing perspective. Without them, this would have been a hazy summary of what my brain registered while I was, uhm, climbing walls and trees to take the pictures you’ve just looked at.
