World renowned music composer Diego Stocco talks creativity with FIDMDigitalArts.com.

As a composer and sound designer, Diego Stocco uses cutting-edge techniques and unorthodox instruments to develop music and sound for film, television, trailers and video performances.

You can hear Stocco’s incredibly unique work in multiple formats– he was the music sound designer on films Chernobyl Diaries, Into the BlueCrank, and Takers; and TV shows The Tudors and Moonlight. Stocco has worked with pros like Academy Award® winning composer Hans Zimmer, and he is one of the featured soloists on the score of Guy Ritchie’s film Sherlock Holmes, and video game Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood.

“Your imagination is the most important plug-in that you have,” he says to leading digital media college, FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, where he is a guest lecturer.

In this exclusive, one-on-one interview on FIDMDigitalArts.com‘s Take 5 web series, Stocco discusses his amazing creative process using unorthodox methods of music making. For example, by rubbing a bow on the trunk of a tree, or by drumming his fingertips on packed beach sand, Stocco creates authentic and unique soundtracks.Whether you’re a seasoned creative professional or an aspiring designer, Stocco’s creative approach to sound design and music composition is truly inspirational.
