* "[[http://youtu.be/rEeiRXOlWUE Starmachine2000]]", by the Swedish band Wintergatan, uses a slide projector to play the beats. And the slides used are actually frames of a stop-motion video. So the projector plays both music and movie! They also have ''The Marble Machine'', which is a hand-cranked analog computer that plays a xylophone, drum kit, and guitar by dropping ball bearings on them.

* Music/IggyPop "Lust For Life" has the characteristic beep of a EKG monitor. Not much spoilering that the patient flatlines at the end of the song...
* How can we forget the work of Music/JohnCage? With his most famous piece, "4'33"", he proved that ''the ambiance of the performing space itself and its audience'' can be a musical instrument. (Granted, it's not exactly a "musical" piece; it more asks us what we consider to be "music".)
