Using everyday materials or whatever happens to be at hand, sound artist Diego Stocco makes his instruments out of the most unlikely of materials. More recently, the Italian-born sonic craftsman stepped outside to draw on his natural environment to create "Music from a Tree."
Bowing, plucking and tapping the tree's trunk, branches and leaves, Stocco builds a a mini-orchestra of the most unlikely sort.
â€It's very different than 'Music From Sand' because this time I didn't use at all synths or samplers, all the notes you hear are coming from the tree,â€ he told Cool Hunting, referring to an earlier project that was featured in our interview with him this spring.
Stocco also creates scores for video games and has released a number of albums onlinethat are worth checking out.
