CPH PIX is more than films! This year we celebrate alternative film music when we present artists like icelandic Múm, danish Elevatorfører and the canadian film artist Karl Lemieux in cinematic live shows all around Copenhagen.
Múm (IS) + 'Menschen am Sonntag'
The icelandic electronica darlings from Múm will deliver the silent film concert of the year! Together with Finnish percussionist Samuli Kosminen the founding members of Múm, Örvar Smárason and Gunnar Tynes, will perform a live score for the German film 'Menschen am Sonntag' (1930) - an often overlooked gem from the silent movie era.
The film is set in 1930's Berlin and tells the bittersweet story of four young friends on a Sunday trip to a lovely lake outside the city. As they swim, soak up the sun, and listen to records on their travel grammophone, a flirty drama and Summer seduction quickly ensues.
Múm is best known for their eclectic approach to electronic music. Along with Dagmar Teatrets charming interior and the dreamy, electronic soundscapes of Múm, you are in for a special treat!
Presented in collaboration with Gong Tomorrow, Wilhelm Hansen Fonden, Goethe Instituttet & UM:LAUT.

'Fantastic Planet' + B/B/S (CA/IT/NO)
Experience music and film come together in a fantastic sci-fi live show under the dome in the Planetarium. 43 years after 'Fantastic Planet's release it is still an evergreen in the stop motion genre. The story which shows human beings living on a strange planet dominated by giant aliens who treat the humans like animals is recognizable for its surreal, psychedelic and lively imagery. The weird atmosphere of the film will be scored by the trio B/B/S.
Formed in 2012 in Berlin, B/B/S/ consists of Aidan Baker and Erik Skodvin on guitars and Andrea Belfi on drums/electronics. The group is known for their largely improvisational music and this evening they will saturate the film in experimental ambient drone jazz. Join the Facebook event.
The concert is presented by CPH PIX and Gong Tomorrow in collaboration Wilhelm Hansen Fonden & Tycho Brahe Planetarium.
The screening at 20.30 will be opened by the dream pop-duo marstal:lidell with Anna Lidell and Henrik Marstal.

Karl Lemieux (CA) & BJ Nilsen (SE) + 16mm visuals
Get to know a proper artist when Montreal-based Karl Lemieux along with swedish sound artist BJ Nilsen performs two brand new live works, shot on location in China and Russia. The Canadien is heavily inspired by analogue music and performs with 16mm film strips, mixing them live in front of the audience. He is also the unofficial ninth member of Godspeed You! Black Emperor - and the man behind their iconic visuals.
Avantgarde composer and video artist Jennifer Walshe will join them with a screening of her film 'An Gléacht' along with a live improvisation.

Jennifer Walshe (IE): 'Everything is Important'
The young irish film artist, composer and performer Jennifer Walshe has developed a truly unique artistic expression, mixing film, music and performance. In her latest work 'Everything is Important', she merrily examines 2016s climate change, financial inequality and euphoric darkness.
Friday November 4th
Presented by Gong Tomorrow and CPH PIX.
The Danish acid rockers Elevatorfører are back at PIX with a brand new live show where they lovingly splashes some colour all over the film history. The orchestra has just released two debut albums after years of only performing live. The creative music collective balance their sound somewhere between the wild rock of the 60's and 70's delivering wild jams combined with the qualities of sing-along pop music. Get psyched to experience the orchestra in a cinematic concert where visuals from different film classics will grace the big screen, and light artists Halucinoptic Rex will let the trippy acid light fill the room.

Andrew Hung (UK) + 'The Greasy Strangler'
British Andrew Hung - best known from the band Fuck Buttons - has crafted his very first film soundtrack, a decidedly groundbreaking synthesizer score for the bizarre indie film 'The Greasy Strangler', which has gained a cult following even before its official release.
Get ready for retro keys, cool computer sounds and trippy vocals when Andrew Hung guests the festival, introduces 'The Greasy Strangler' and performs his soundtrack at Edison during CPH PIX's opening weekend.
