La musique des sables, détendez vous

La musique est partout, et même là  où on ne l’attend pas forcément, sur la plage la musique est souvent là  avec des postes radios, ou encore des baladeurs numériques, aujourd’hui on retrouve la musique dans le sable.

Une musique tournée vers la détente et la sérénité, si vous n’avez pas de plage, achetez un sac de sable 😉

Diego Stocco – Music From Sand from Diego Stocco on Vimeo.

I had some sandbags in the backyard that I used in November during a rainy day. I was moving them to a different spot when I heard the noise of the sand. I thought that maybe I could try a new sound design technique so I bought some piezo film transducers and started to experiment with them.

The entire track is created only out of tuned sand tones. No additional sounds or waveforms.
I emphasized the inner notes of the sand grains and mapped them on a sampler as a series of instruments. The grooves are all played live with various techniques, including taping two piezo films to my fingers.

I’d like to dedicate this work to Mike Oldfield. When I was a child I listened to his music and it opened my mind. That experience triggered my life passion to create the means to access sounds we’ve never heard before. If you have questions or you just want to say hi please write at
