"Natura Morta is a trio for viola, bass, and drums dedicated to exploring musical structures and relationships through collective all-acoustic improvisation. The Brooklyn-based ensemble creates acoustic sound-sculptures and sonic landscapes through the use of nontraditional techniques and instrumental preparations. The musical range of the trio stretches from heated silences to relentless drones to frantic hyperactivity.

Natura Morta released its eponymous debut recording in March 2012 on the Brooklyn-based record label Prom Night Records. The band performed several concerts in New York City and toured the East Coast/Midwest of the US twice that year. In October 2012 Natura Morta released a live recording on a split tape with guitarist Nick Millevoi on the Philadelphia-based label Edible Onion."-Natura Morta website
