Known for his love of audio experimentation and custom-built instruments, Diego Stocco has forged new ground in the world of sound design.
Diego Stocco - Sound Designer/Composer
From his love of discovering hidden sounds from organic sources, objects and materials, Diego's unorthodox musical curiosity allows him to produce music with sounds never heard before. He collaborated with legendary producer / songwriter Patrick Leonard to showcase DTS Neo:X 11.1 audio and later crafted the sound design for the DTS Sound Signature.
As a key Producer for Spectrasonics, he's one of the principal creative sound designers for the multi-award winning virtual instruments Atmosphere™, Stylus™ RMX and the new Power Synth Omnisphere®. For this epic project, he built several custom instruments such as the Experibass and Bassoforte, as well as created sounds out of ordinary objects like light bulbs, pieces of furnitures, a washing machine, a clothes drying rack, a typewriter, and many others imaginative contraptions. Diego created the first 3 volumes of the "Epic Textures" series for Epic Score/APM, which have been licensed for numerous marketing campaigns including film trailers like "Terminator Salvation", "2012", "Eagle Eye", "The Uninvited", "Lady in the Water", videogame trailers like "Justice League Heroes", "Soulcalibur IV", "MK vs DC, "Call of Duty, World at War", TV shows like "Dexter", "Daily Show", "Cold Case" and many other promos.
His performances have been featured internationally on CNN, Discovery Channel Canada, Rai2, Rai3, Rai4, Arte.TV, Deejay TV, Wired.com, BoingBoing.net, Motherboard.tv.
