Michele was invited to do a performance with the Monolith Guitar Stefano Cagol presented on the occasion of his participation to the Maldives Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013.

King Tongue with Alex Cecchetti, Milan 2002
Alex Cecchetti rehearsed with King Tongue for about six months, providing a lasting contribution with the lyrics and melody of "Drink". The track was consequently recorded and included in the band first album, "This is the Sound" (whose title was also Cecchetti's idea).

To celebrate the life and achievements of groundbreaking composer and musician Luigi Russolo, King Tongue's live performance was augmented by artists Sergio Armaroli, Andrea Contin, Gabriele Marsile and Steve Piccolo playing a set of Russolo's noise-generating device 'Intonarumori'.
Roberta Silva asked Bruno to perform a solo piece with the aid of a pair of glow-in-the-dark drumsticks, which directed by the movements that produce the sounds relate the visual apparition of rhythm and thus become their most literal dancing performance. The video was filmed in front of a live audience at Nike Studio in Milan (2006) and later projected at Francesca Kaufmann Gallery.
Una Szeemann organized a bus tour where actor Denny Exnar would read excerpts from dreams she has collected from fellow artists, curators and writers.
