INVERNOMUTO
(Simone Bertuzzi and Simone Trabucchi)

They have been collaborating as Invernomuto since 2003. The artistic research of the Invernomuto duo focuses on the use of the moving image and sound, chosen as preferred but not exclusive vehicles for an investigation into the facets of the stories, cultures and narratives of contemporary world. The duo’s projects, which often take place in space and time also through installations and performances, aim at a contaminated and protean story, never finished within itself but always open to new variations and developments. Invernomuto’s project Black Med, initiated in 2018, is an ongoing platform which aims at intercepting the trajectories that sounds trace passing through the Mediterranean Sea. This geographical area, once understood as a fluid entity aiding the formation of networks and exchange, is now the scenario of a humanitarian crisis and heated geopolitical dispute. On the occasion of the 58th October Salon, Invernomuto investigate the Balkan area and the multiple sonic directions crossing the Adriatic Sea, thus focusing on the theme of real and imagined borders, so present in the whole exhibition project. The artists present the project through a performative session and an installation. Black Med, Chapter VII (2021) is a listening session based on a DJ set supported by a series of projected slides containing theoretical texts and backstories referring to the musical pieces, grouped by elegiac themes. The sessions explore different journeys of sound movement, touching topics such as alternate uses of technology, migrations, peripheries and interspecies. The sound installation Black Med, Beograd, Beograd (2021) is a beta version of blackmed.invernomuto.info —a web platform due to be launched in fall 2021 and designed to perform the musical archive of Black Med. The core of the project is an algorithm able to play with the tracks and to broadcast an endless stream. The system is open and anyone can upload new sounds into it: the goal is to have a growing archive, a Black Med magma, which evolves constantly.
