    These are two examples of using found sound. The first one is cars zipping past me in the street. Made this into a pad. If you listen you can still here the cars in the pad. The second is my finger strumming the grooves on the back of a radiator. I have added lots of reverb and filters to distort the sound.

    Sounds quite nice. I like the idea of this but I'm a bit lazy and I don't have any decent 'sound capture device'.
    What did you use?
    This could make a good challenge. Construct a tune using only 'Found Sound', as you call it.

    I do this all the time; I have made things in the past using only things I've recorded.

    Things like modem dial up noises and feedback. Aerosol sprays and water droplets.

    Also:

    clapping, talking (heavily distorted), ball bouncing against a wall, windows error messages :)p) radio tuning noises, and more that I can't recall.

    Nice effort mate, good to see people using methods like this.

    Really like the pad, the car sample gives it a nice movement.

    i use a portable sound recorder from edirol. It has two mounted condenser mics, records in 24bit into wavs and mp3s. cost me £250. Pricey, but i can also line in record. Plug the red and white from xbox 360 and record all gameplay and cut sequences. Also, if i plug headphones in and turn the mic boost on i can hear peoples conversations from a distance. Its like having sonic fucking hearing.

    Mind walking me through how you made these sounds? Especially the cars.
