Diego Stocco’s Experibass – Must See Music Video

This is another absolutely amazing video from sound designer/composer Diego Stocco:

Few weeks ago I visited a luthier looking for instruments parts, I had an idea in mind for an instrument I wanted to build. My curiosity was to hear the sound of violin, viola and cello strings amplified through the body of a double bass. I came up with a quadruple-neck experimental “something” that I thought to call Experibass.

To play it I used cello and double bass bows, a little device I built with fishing line and hose clamps, a paintbrush, a fork, spoons, a kick drum pedal and a drum stick. I hope you’ll like it!

Thanks to luthier John Wu for providing me the parts, even though I warned him that I was probably going to create a “monster” : )

You can see more details at Stocco’s Behance portfolio site. See Stocco’s Vimeo site for more examples of his musical sound design.

  1. Wow! This guy is amazing. I saw him in a lot of the promotional stuff for Omnisphere and thought he seemed really talented then, but this video just blew my mind.

  2. MPS – I don't think it takes money. He usually takes stuff that's junk to other people, and figures out how to do something interesting musically.

    Have you seen what old pianos go for these days?

    "Free, you haul" is the norm.

  3. That's just plain riveting. He not only BUILT the thing (obviously an extensive process), but had a sound environment in his head to begin with. THAT'S my idea of sit-up-&-triangulate music. I love it when someone takes a wild left turn into Pepperland South. My respects.
