Music From A Dry Cleaner by Diego Stocco


Almost everyday, on my way to a local bakery, I walk in front of a dry cleaners. 
When they have the front door open, I hear a lot of interesting sounds coming from their work equipment. Eventually, the different mechanical and steam sounds sparked something in my mind, so one day I asked the owners if I could record a piece of music by using their machines as musical instruments.

I used a puff iron, press and dry cleaning machines, a washer, clothes hangers, and a bucket full of soap. 

The bass and lead sounds were created from the buzzing tones coming from the conduits and engines. 

There are no additional sounds from any traditional or electronic instruments. Enjoy!
