Diego Stocco

Diego Stocco is an experimental musician/artist who has developed a both playful and explorative practice in making his work. Though on his page it states that he is a ‘sound designer/composer’ I feel he, like others, Eno for instance, is leading the way for new musical and audio experiments.

Stocco seems to have boy-like fansination with objects wanting to play with them using his imagination (could be called innovation), much as a child turns its enviroment into whatever fantasy world they desire, Stocco turns his enviroment into and instrument for which he can compose anything from. It reminds me of past audio work of mine where I attempted to turn the soundscape (as I like to call them) of my high street flat into a coherent piece of music, trying to bring order and beauty to otherwise overlooked sounds within our lives.
