CPH PIX Festival | BJNilsen, Jacob Kirkegaard & Hilmar Orn Hilmarsson
Copenhagen's CPH PIX is a feature film festival that aims to bring people together in Denmark's capital to see good films from all over the world; original, thought-provoking, funny and controversial films that can't be found in regular cinema programmes. This years festival, running from April 15-25th, features the involvement of three Touch-related artists.
BJNilsen will compose and perform an exclusive score for the newly restored Fritz Lang classic “Metropolis”. PIX will screen the film in Copenhagen's and Scandinavia's biggest cinema Imperial, in 7.1 surround sound. BJNilsen's performance will include field recordings and improvisations.

Jacob Kirkegaard will perform together with Lydia Lunch the world premiere of their new piece “Forget to Breathe”. The concert will take place at the Marble Church in Copenhagen, as part of a double concert; second part being Diamanda Gálas' performance of “Your Kisses are like Fire”. Click here for further info.

Last but not least, Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson is participating in a debate on film music and specifically the sound of horror. He has recently scored Fridrik Thors film “Mama Gogo”, and the horror “Reykjavik Whale Watching Massacre” which we will screen. Jacob Kirkegaard will also participate in the debate; he has worked with sound effects for the Danish horror film “Kollegiet” (“The Dorm”). Click here for further info.
