If it makes a sound, it's an instrument. This is the unique philosophy and production approach of forward-thinking artist Diego Stocco, who creates music with quirky objects and locations, constantly defying expectations and charming his growing fan base. This time, it's a dry cleaner.
"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."
Anything goes for anyone actually. If you have an idea, you can make music easily with today's technology. Try an introduction to music production class with us today.
