HORTON HEARS A HALLUCINOGENIC WHO

An orchestral composer out of the Czech Republic has claimed that he steals most of his music from singing mushrooms in the forest near his home. Composer Vaclav Halek, who has written 2,000 songs, numerous film and theatre scores, and one symphony, says the secret to his prolific musical output lies in the frequent walks he takes in the woods, where he carries a pencil and paper and lies down near a pile of fungi and listens intently. "I simply record music that a mushroom sings to me," says Halek, who claims that music also comes from rocks and trees, but that mushrooms sing the best melodies. (Smh.com.au)

Interesting, after I got home from a Deep Purple concert I sat down in a quiet room listened to the ringing in my ears, realized it sounded really cool and wrote it down.  My band refused to play it though :/confused.gif.  But obviously this guy is much cooler.
