Diego Stocco and his Custom Built Orchestra

Posted October 24th, 2012 under Music

Experimental musician Diego Stocco has built a range of unique hybrid instruments for his Custom-Built Orchestra. They have names like Expiricello, Textural Flute, Luminopiano, and Glockenstrange.

Diego Stocco: “I have always been fascinated by the raw musical power that an orchestra can express, so, after creating a series of videos where I’m performing a multi-track piece with an instrument I designed, I decided to take the concept a step farther and create my own orchestra made of unusually unique instruments.

The project started by handcrafting a diverse selection of instruments, then I wrote a composition where I could fit them all in and finally performed each part. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I enjoyed doing it!
