Natura Morta is an international trio comprising of violist Frantz Loriot, contrabassist Sean Ali and percussionist Carlo Costa. The ensemble is dedicated to exploring musical structures and relationships through collective all-acoustic improvisation. The ensemble creates acoustic sound-sculptures and slow moving sonic landscapes through the use of a variety of strategies. Nontraditional techniques and instrumental preparations are employed by the trio to produce a wide range of timbers. The musical scope of the ensemble stretches from heated silences to relentless drones, to frantic hyperactivity.
