I bet in Diego Stocco‘s mind there is no such thing as ‘noise’. Why? In his latest sound adventure he turns dry cleaner sounds into music.
Diego asked the owners of a local Dry Cleaner shop if he could record a piece of music by using their machines as musical instruments. He used a puff iron, press and dry cleaning machines, a washer, clothes hangers, and a bucket full of soap.
The bass and lead sounds were created from the buzzing tones coming from the conduits and engines. There are no additional sounds from any traditional or electronic instruments.
(thank you Diego)
This reminds me on the Song “pipeline” by Depeche Mode. Exact the same way of recording. Beautiful!

I love Diego’s positive attitude! This is brilliant. Big smiles and I’m inspired to try something like this. Thanks for posting, Tina!

The desire to use our creative ability, can extend our boundaries to unimagined dimensions.

Great idea! Any laundry or drycleaner should be proud to own some many cool instruments ;-)
