The «Institute of Incoherent Cinematography» (IOIC) is domiciled in Zurich, Switzerland and promotes the image of silent film and its representation in the form of live setting to music. On September 2019, the «IOIC» celebrated its 10th anniversary with a tour through Chile, Argentina and Brazil.

The live music performances take into account cultural and social variety and aim to consider musicians, sound artists, bands, ensembles and orchestras of various age groups and styles of music. This is, among others, intended to actively promote the exchange between the various genres.

During the tour in South America, a selection of silent fictional and documentary films was presented with new live scores by internationally renowned Argentinian, Brazilian, Chilean and Swiss musicians from different genres – from jazz and improvised music to post-rock, live electronics and contemporary experimental music.
