As part of the 3rd X-Dream Festival, ARTos foundation in collaboration with Goethe Institut present for the first time in Cyprus the Berlin based platform 'Moving Silence' and they organise a special two days event on contemporary "silent" moving image and experimental sound.

On Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd of December 2011, musicians from Berlin, Nicosia and Athens will meet in ARTos foundation in order to perform live soundtracks for "silent" video and film works by contemporary creators. "The contemporary cinema could take back this expressive freedom" the Moving Silence members state. "Any visual style can profit from a sound language, by using advanced digital technologies as well as old analog techniques. Live performances sustain and amplify the films as musicians can breathe new life into silent cinema, which inappropriately remained silent for such a long time." Encouraging collaboration and exchange between musicians, artists and cinematographers, the Moving Silence platform therefore invites the Nicosia audience to new audiovisual experiences expressed through live improvisations and interpretations, where experimental image and sound are expected to meet in unusual and unexpected ways.

Moving Silence was originally founded in summer 2009 by the musician Marco Brosolo, filmmaker Matthias Fritsch and producer Federico Bassetti with the aim to create events that connect the roots of cinematography with the present aesthetics of image, the live music production and the potential of new technology. It constitutes a poetic, intercultural and collaborative attempt in times of information overload. It embraces experimentation and merging between contemporary forms of visual and sound inviting artists by different parts of the world to join in. Moving Silence events have taken place in different cities around Europe.
