    Also yeah, I haven't really thought about seeing a tree used as one :p They're setting the bar so high now, soon music made by regular instruments won't suffice anymore!

    I've not just wanted to see/hear it, I've acted on the impulse.

    Look up "aeolian harp." Cotton chord attached to the ends of stretched fishing line, with closed empty 2-liter bottles as bridge saddle resonators, all high up in the trees of the park near where I used to live.

    I didn't want something which would be a permanent install, so I figure the cotton would eventually break at some point and the whole thing would come down. I couldn't get the installations to resonate at specific pitches, because I couldn't get the lengths to a specific tension, but on winter nights, there was quite a low moaning/howling....

    We've had rock. Then we've had metal. Now we have wood.

    Not long before we have hard wood, heavy wood, progressive wood, punk wood, and thjud

    Diego Stocco is awesome! :agreed:

    He's a master fucking sound designer. Some of the wavetable content that he created for Specrasonics Omisphere is positively brilliant. Water poured though pipes, mallets on light bulbs, and, of course, the infamous burning piano (no "quotes" necessary, they actually set a piano on fucking fire, played it, and sampled it). :metal:
