Diego contacted us to let us know about the new pice hes created from sounds made at his local Dry Cleaners - Aviva Cleaners in Burbank CA.
As usual, Diego makes brilliant use of the environment to make something really special. AND he gets to explore the inside of this place which looks like an amazing place to explore.
Almost everyday, on my way to a local bakery, I walk in front of a dry cleaners.
When they have the front door open, I hear a lot of interesting sounds coming from their work equipment.
Eventually, the different mechanical and steam sounds sparked something in my mind, so one day I asked the owners if I could record a piece of music by using their machines as musical instruments.
I used a puff iron, press and dry cleaning machines, a washer, clothes hangers, and a bucket full of soap.
The bass and lead sounds were created from the buzzing tones coming from the conduits and engines.
There are no additional sounds from any traditional or electronic instruments. Enjoy!
I guess I've been trying to recreate a Korg Electribe all this time..
