Diego Stocco
« on: September 26, 2011, 10:43:49 PM »
There was a really cool story on NPR over the weekend about this musician whose "found sounds" were featured and have even been used for a couple movie soundtracks.  Worth the listen, here's the story:  http://www.npr.org/2011/09/24/140719607/the-mad-musical-scientist-of-burbank-california

Thats some performance.....Diego Stocco played a big part in the sampled sound engine of Spectrasonics software synth, Omnisphere.  I believe he was responsible for the infamous Burning Piano patch.  I dont own the software but this part of it seems the most interesting.

Thanks very much for that Julio- this just goes to show that music is available everywhere.  The tibetan bowl effect was simply awesome, and as for burning the piano at the end, who says ambient musicians can't go out like a rockstar?
