    One of my mates is planning to a muique concréte project using found sounds (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musique_concr%C3%A8te) if you don't know what I'm on about

    and basically he's started collecting found sounds on a little mini disc recorder, and he was asking me for my favourite sounds

    was hard to think of any but came up with:

    opening a zippo
    shuffling cards
    crackle of vinyl
    skateboard on a pavement
    car tyres of gravel

    seems quite interesting what different people had told him and was just wondering if anyone had any of their own that I could relay back to him?

    There was an ad for a car and they made a tune up out of car related sounds like the door shutting, seatbelt stretching, buttons being pushed in etc, that was cool!
