About 20 seconds into this video, I thought, “Dude, that’s Awesome! I gotta blog this!”
Sound designer and composer Diego Stocco has a talent for innovating and improvising music. One of his inventions is an ingenious musical instrument he calls Bassoforte--- achieved by splicing a piano keyboard with strings from an electric bass and guitar... and various things.
As the name says, the device literally combines Bass and Pianoforte... and plays quite nicely, producing a unique, interesting tune. Much of the music created by Diego has a very 'Steampunk' aesthetic-- in sound, instrument design & construction.
Listen to other samples of his imaginitive musical experimentation.
