Composer and sound designer Diego Stocco can afford to buy instruments (he composes music for video games and films). But he prefers to find them, wherever he goes: sand, cornflakes, trees, and other sorts of things that most “professional” musicians haughtily dismiss as mere trifles, stuff, non-musical objects.

In this episode of our Sound Builders series from last year, we went shopping with him at Home Depot to gather materials for a new bass-like instrument, and watched him put it together. More recently, he got access to a dry cleaners, and brought some sound equipment along. Watch and listen.
