Diego Stocco – Bassoforte




Few days ago I started thinking about how I could re-purpose the keyboard of the dismantled piano I keep in the garden,  so I thought to build a new instrument by combining it with some other parts I had laying around. I ended up with this mechanical hybrid thing I thought to call “Bassoforte” (bass + pianoforte).

The neck is from a broken electric bass, as a bridge I used a cabinet handle, the pickups are from a guitar, and the part at the top where the strings are attached is a chimney cap, which works as resonator as well as percussive sound.

The track I created is a tribute to my Dad who is a big fan of Western comic books and “spaghetti western” films, and because of him I am too.

I hope you’ll like it!

The track is available also at my Bandcamp page: http://diegostocco.bandcamp.com/track/bassoforte
