Sisters Martha and Olivia Agostini have created “Casscomics” – an underground production of music cassettes + comic zines – in order to finalize their creative vision, combining analogue and digital means, words, music and drawings to accomplish their ultimate goal, that of telling stories.
When a music cassette meets a comic zine, there you have a new format: the “casscomic”.
Comics with a soundtrack…
The ‘Casscomics’ are like static movies, where all bits of information can be taken at once or distilled into moments.
… or songs with a visual impact?
Apart from being an aesthetic choice, this is almost a necessity for two artists who cannot give up one art for the other, and simply want to tell stories.
