Alserkal Residency residents Invernomuto aim to intercept the trajectories that sounds trace. The Mediterranean Sea, once understood as a fluid entity aiding the formation of networks and exchange, is now the backdrop of a humanitarian crisis and heated geopolitical dispute.

Following scholar Alessandra Di Maio’s adaptation of the Black Atlantic theory to the Mediterranean, Black Med by Alserkal Residency residents Invernomuto aims to intercept the trajectories that sounds trace when passing through this protean area.

Divided into different chapters, the Black Med listening sessions are 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 on topics such as alternate uses of technology, migrations and interspecies.

Alserkal Arts Foundation’s 2019 Fall Cycle residents Invernomuto (Simone Bertuzzi and Simone Trabucchi) will present the fourth chapter of Black Med, which expands the Mediterranean journey to include a detour into the Gulf. Following this, they will tour the listening session for the Meetings on Arts Performance Programme at the 2019 Venice Biennial.

This event is part of Alserkal Residency's Fall public programme. Free and open to all however RSVP is required via the following link.
