There's a nice piece in the New York Times on Seattlite Christopher DeLaurenti who takes sound recordings from orchestra intermissions and WTO protests and turns them into experimental electronic/ambient music.
For Mr. DeLaurenti, 39, a Seattle-based “sound artist” and composer, the noises were art. Now, out of more than 50 hours of recording, he has compiled a CD of greatest hits. It is called “Favorite Intermissions: Music Before and Between Beethoven, Stravinsky, Holst,” the latest entry in humankind’s search for art in unexpected nooks.
Try out Let Me Tell You About Tiger Tiger for a taste.
