    UPDATE 12/02/10: I used the bowed zither techniques on Jesper Kyd score of Assassin's Creed Brotherhood: http://is.gd/i7tLj A short abstract piece created during one of the sessions I did for an upcoming project. I used an old dismantled piano, antique zithers collected in the past few months and metallic wind chimes. Played with piano hammers and a dulcimer bow. http://twitter.com/DiegoStocco

      There must be something in the wind that really inspires me. Few days ago, I opened the window of my bedroom and I had the impression of being listening to the sound of sea waves. I felt so inspired that I went outside to record an abstract piece, I grabbed few instruments I had laying around and some pieces of wood I found at the beach few weeks ago. If I closed my eyes I could imagine my garden being the sea, my instruments being a little sailing ship and the trees the destination where I was going to. I hope you'll like it.

        Laraaji is a musician, mystic and laughter meditation practitioner based in New York City. He began playing music on the streets in the 1970s, improvising trance-inducing jams on a modified autoharp processed through various electronic effects. Brian Eno saw him playing one night in Washington Square Park and invited him to record an album for his seminal Ambient series (Ambient 3: Day Of Radiance, released 1980). Laraaji has gone on to release a prolific series of album for a wide variety of labels, many of which he recorded himself at home and sold as cassettes during his street performances. In recent years he has been collaborating with a new generation of underground musicians, most notably on the album he recorded for the acclaimed FRKWYS series with Blues Control. This short documentary has been made to coincide with a series of reissues being released on the All Saints label. Produced by Chris Hall for Start Productions.

            The Specty is the more compact, portable sibling of my larger Specto instrument. The original was built many years ago, and although I still love and use it today, it’s size and weight made it impractical for taking around to rehearsals/gigs. I’ve also been trying to downsize my setup as to make it easier to gig internationally. There is no way I’d be able to take the full sized Specto on a flight. The Specty on the other hand fits in a carry-on suitcase. Software used is a program I wrote in Max/MSP called The Party Van. It is available for free download on my webpage. The controllers are a Monome, Arc, and Softstep.
