Memex is an interactive installation based on storytelling, which transforms letters into musical expedient, not only narrative. Memex is the result of a residence in a border area - Gorizia - in which old and new migrations intertwine with the history of the territory. Our reflection focused on the linguistic gap, which is often the first wall for the peaceful communion of identity. We have transformed a computer keyboard into a musical keyboard, so texts (both those collected - with beautiful graphemes of distant and old languages seen on the screen - and those written live by people interacting) becomes a melody, which wants to clear the linguistic barriers through the music.
