Massimo Ruberti from Livorno (Italy) likes to define himself as a “sound&visions trafficker”. This vague term instead, allows him to move quite easily from one role to another, in the creation of live performances, music and videoart.
He creates works that accompany exhibitions, performances, happenings, audio/video installations, silent films screening and multimedia catalogues presentations. With the assistance of the laptop and some analogic synths, he is able to perform his compositions in the live dimension, enriching them with the collaboration of other musicians on the stage and undoing sound schemes that approach thus the method of jazz and pure improvisation.
The red thread that unifies his works is surely the theme of Journey, of the flight from this reality towards imagined or transfigured worlds. The journey also (and mostly) thought as a path inside oneself. Compositions are often long instrumental suites where electronic and videos accompany themselves, and often collide to create hybrid forms.
In his little mobile studio, the “Dogana d’acqua”, his compositions have been enriched from time to time by valuable sax, choir, or piano interventions. In fact, he loves get surrounded by people who would live a print on the schemes of his art.
