(CBS News) Diego Stocco is more than a sound designer. He is an artist, and I mean that in the truest sense of the word. Don't misunderstand me. I know all musicians are artists in their own way. But the complexity and imagination Stocco puts into his projects really elevate them to what I consider works of art. Go ahead and take a look and listen of his latest composition.
Okay, seriously, are you as amazed by the complexity of this project as I am? Because I'm amazed! The Vimeo video entitled "Custom Built Orchestra" was sent to us personally (because we're cool like that) by Diego Stocco, who has previously been featured here on The Feed for making music from trees, a dry cleaner and more, and who writes about this latest masterpiece:
I always been fascinated by the raw musical power that an orchestra can express, so, after creating a series of videos where I'm performing a multi-track piece with an instrument I designed, I decided to take the concept a step farther and create my own orchestra made of unusually unique instruments.
Another mind-blowing work by Stocco that has earned him a big triple-rainbow salute of excellence from us here at The Feed! If you'd like to check out more work by Diego Stocco, you can visit his website by clicking here and for more from eMusic, you can go to their website by clicking here.
The project started by handcrafting a diverse selection of instruments, then I wrote a composition where I could fit them all in and finally performed each part. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed doing it!
