This may or may not be what Erik Satie had in mind when he talked of a music that went well with the sound of silverware at a dinner party, but among the more recent field-recording remixes at the Freesound project ( is a one-second snippet (MP3) recorded by Freesound contributor harri (“taken from a random sampled tour of my kitchen with a microphone”), and a 25-second extrapolation thereof (MP3) that transforms the quotidian beat into an addictive rhythm (and makes the term “industrial house” literal). If those MP3 links don’t function, head over to the Freesound site’s remix page and look for harri’s entries “35drawclose.mp3″ and “kitchenbeat1_90bpm.mp3″ (link).
