Diego Stocco – Music from a tree

Music from a tree

Sound designer Diego Stocco (producer for Spectrasonics) creates dynamic and innovative music experiences.

His music extensively uses unique sounds created specifically for each project through custom built instruments and techniques, allowing him to produce eclectic compositions with sounds never heard before.

Diego recently posted a new musical piece, created on a tree.

In the garden of my house there’s a tree with lots of randomly grown twigs. It looks odd and nice at the same time. One day I asked myself if I could create a piece of music with it.

To tune the tree I picked a fundamental note and tuned the twigs by trimming them with a pencil sharpener. I used two Røde NT6 and a NTG-2 as microphones, combined with a customized stethoscope.

I recorded the tracks live on a Pro Tools LE system. I didn’t use any synthesizer or sampler to create or modify the sounds. All the sounds come from playing the tree, by bowing the twigs, shaking the leaves, playing rhythms on the cortex and so on.

Artist Tim Knowles explains that the exploration of Chance and Process is core to his artistic practice. Check his Tree Drawings to see what that means.

Tim writes:

Drawings produced by pens attached to the tips of tree branches, as the branches move in the wind the tree draws on to a panel or drawing board on an easel. Like signatures the trees drawings tell of the tree’s character; a Hawthorn producing a stiff, scratchy & spikey drawing an Oak a more elegant flowing line.
