Diego Stocco has been at it again. After the incredible Music From Sand, and Music From a Tree (and of course we've been lucky enough to have him join us on the SonicTALK Podcast occiasionally), the new Experibass is a strange amalgam of contra, violin, cello and viola (I think) that Diego strokes, hits and scratches to create another great piece.
A few weeks ago I visited a luthier looking for instruments parts, I had an idea in mind for an instrument I wanted to build. My curiosity was to hear the sound of violin, viola and cello strings amplified through the body of a double bass. I came up with a quadruple-neck experimental "something" that I thought to call Experibass. To play it I used cello and double bass bows, a little device I built with fishing line and hose clamps, a paintbrush, a fork, spoons, a kick drum pedal and a drum stick. I hope you'll like it! Thanks to luthier John Wu for providing me the parts, even though I warned him that I was probably going to create a "monster" : )
Wow, this guy is brilliant!

So much power in a small package - but how does it perform?
