Diego Stocco’s Duet for Leaves & Turntable

Diego Stocco posted Duet for Leaves & Turntable, another brilliant demonstration of the beauty of music made with everyday objects.

Recently I bought a turntable to use it for an experiment, but that didn’t turn out as I was expecting. Then, I noticed the equally spaced ridges on the plate and got an idea for something else.

For about an hour I recorded short musical phrases by rubbing leaves against the turntable (the type of leaf, angle, pressure and fold determined the sound), then I combined the different takes together. Every element comes from those recordings, including the bass, kick and snare sounds (shaped with EQ, compression and resonators).
