You know that VW Golf commercial that gets its semi-incidental music track from sounds recorded in and around the Golf? A musician’s taking a similar concept and turning it green — by creating Music From a Tree.
Diego Stocco, a composer and sound designer in Burbank., Calif., turned a tree into an instrument — and made a video showing his creative process. “It sounds funny as a concept but I used some customized microphones and recorded so many different sounds out of it,” Diego says. “I love creating music with custom made instrument and unusual techniques, including also using natural sources like sand or water.”
