CINESTHESIA

Since 2006 AUXXX has been presenting mixed media programmes at various venues in Berlin and Amsterdam. AUXXX specialises in combining 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.
