Lab Track: Music from Nature

Today, a lyricless Lab Track. (About damn time, if you ask me.) Diego Stocco is a composer and sound designer who uses noises from his everyday life to create complex musical tapestries. He records grains of sand and plays songs on lightbulbs and builds four-neck basses. It’s frankly incredible to hear the kinds of textures he can achieve with everyday objects.

This one is called Music from Nature. As you’ll see, he plays nature as an instrument by using everything from tree branches to orange peels to create a rhythmic, driving dance track. Enjoy!
