Lago Morto is a band conceived by italian artist Nico Vascellari as contribution to the exhibition ‘Rock Scissors Paper’ curated by Diedrich Diedrichsen at Kunsthaus Graz.
Lago Morto is, in the curator’s words’, ‘a social punk sculpture’, a way ‘to turn the model of the cast band upside down. Lago Morto is about things that casting calls usually exclude - targeted aggression, unpredictable social effects and local politics’. The results is a band that toured for fifteen days in Vittorio Veneto in non musical venues such as bar, osteria, pizzeria, laundrete, video store etc. The LP contains all fourteen songs the band has created. The DVD contains a video from each of the sixteen locations of the tour plus an extra video playing the sixteen videos simultaneously.
