Diego Stocco: Full talk from Wired 2012

Diego Stocco
Second to talk was musician Diego Stocco who turns the world around him into musical instruments. He opened his talk by asking the audience to imagine the waves in the ocean and how the shapes the water makes can be turned into “living frequencies” that can be used to create music. He also demonstrated Bassoforte, an instrument made out of a bass guitar and a piano.

Thinks took a turn for the weird when he showed how to make music from the different sounds of a tree. “So I tuned a tree…” he said, which he did through a series of interactions such as knocking on the bark and shaking the branches.” Other projects include making tunes from kitchen items and a dry cleaner. He concluded: “I want to live in a future with more music that will surprise me.”
