Diego Stocco can be seen as an artist (composer/sound designer) who, whether he knows it or not, took the ideas of Harry Partch, John Cage and a minimalist (Glass, Riley, Adams, etc) and made something from them. From Partch, the idea of making one’s own instruments from that which is found in nature—and inventing a tuning system with which to play them. Cage insisted that anything and everything is music. And the minimalists took sounds and ideas, then found ways of transforming them over extended (compared to most music pre-20th century) figurations.
