CINESTHESIA

Since 2006 AUXXX has been bringing audiences in Berlin and Amsterdam unique evenings of music, film, dance, poetry and performance, specialising in programs with new and unexpected combinations. AUXXX specialises in combining diverse artists and their audiences in a special way, tapping into creative undercurrents and opening up new channels. Between September 2017 and June 2019 AUXXX organised a special series of film and music events together with Dr Claus Löser at Brotfabrik Kino in Berlin. Various approaches to composing for and playing to film were showcased - we tried to avoid the typical format of “improvised soundtrack to a silent movie” and instead challenged musicians to compose and perform on an equal footing with the films, sometimes using the original soundtracks as source material, other times playing a concert along with and in parallel to the film on screen.
