Music From A Tree

Sound Designer Diego Stocco Uses A Tree To Make His Latest Track      14/07/09

Sound designer Diego Stocco can make music out of anything, it seems.

Previously, Stocco has made video promos using a burning piano, a stapler and sand.

In this sound design portfolio piece, Music From A Tree, Stocco uses "a tree with lots of randomly grown twigs", found in his yard, as his instrument.

Stocco used two two Røde NT6 and a NTG-2 as microphones, combined with a customized stethoscope. The sounds were recorded into Pro Tools LE.

All the sounds come from playing the tree, by bowing the twigs, shaking the leaves, playing rhythms on the cortex and so on.
