Diego Stocco – Luminosonic from Diego Stocco on Vimeo.

The brilliant sound-designer Diego Stocco has a page on Vimeo where he has uploaded various clips of himself making music with a range of unlikely everyday objects and substances. For example, the sounds on the video shown here were all sampled from lightbulbs and their filaments. The results remind me somewhat of the quality of sound that Cliff Martinez achieves on his score for the re-make of Solaris.

I was pointed to this page before by a comment on another blog (thanks Erika), but it has taken me a while to follow it up.

Inspiring stuff.

PS – Make sure you check out the burning piano video.
