UM:LAUT X CPH PIX: Múm & „Menschen am Sonntag“ in Copenhagen
Back in February we welcomed the globally celebrated band Múm to play a live score to the silent film masterpiece „Menschen am Sonntag“ in the city of its creation on the shores of the Spree River. After two sold-out nights in the mighty hall of Radialsystem V we are very happy and proud to present another round of splendid music meeting a milestone of cinema in the frame of Copenhagen’s great film festival CPH PIX. On 28 October, Múm’s founding members Gunnar Örn Tynes and Örvar Smárason join forces with percussion wizard Samuli Kosminen to perform an improvised live score to the often overlooked German classic within Dagmar Teatret’s charming interior. Copenhagen, here we come!

CPH PIX is an annual film festival in Copenhagen. It resulted from the merger of the Copenhagen International Film Festival and the NatFilm Festival in 2008 to create an organisation called Copenhagen Film Festivals, which also manages the documentary film festival CPH:DOX and the BUSTER Film Festival for children and youth. The first CPH PIX Film Festival was held in April 2009 with an audience of 36,500 people, which was the largest audience ever recorded for a film festival in Copenhagen. Since the first edition, the festival has grown to have an audience of more than 55,000.
This year the festival also celebrates alternative film music: Besides Múm, it presents artists like Elevatorfører, Berlin-based experimental trio B/B/S, Swedish sound artist BJ Nilsen and the Canadian film artist Karl Lemieux in cinematic live shows all around Copenhagen.
