Hot Jams At The Dry Cleaners
If you're one of those people who taps a pencil to whatever's playing on The New 96.1/Joy-FM, you might enjoy this. Composer and sound designer Diego Stocco, who earlier this year was able to coax music from a tree [Really. Click this link if you don't believe me], worked out a way to make music from a most-unlikely place; a dry cleaning shop!
Stocco passed by a dry cleaners on the way to a bakery in San Francisco. He heard the variety of sounds coming from the equipment inside and, instead of being annoyed by the noise [as many of you would be], he heard the roots of a song [of course, if you can make music from a tree, a dry cleaners is probably a piece of cake]. Here's the video that shows it all coming together:

Gotta admit, it sure beats the Geico "smartphone" band:
