One of the discographies** in Nicola Dibben's (2001)* study might be
of your interests: the disc seems to cover natural sound display
including 'Heavy Rain', 'Fire crackle', 'Cat miaowing' etc.

I am part of a team working on a sustainable solar house project,
and we might be looking at using some natural sound-making materials
as "auditory displays". I was wondering if anyone can forward
examples and ideas as to what those could be, what has been done and
how could it be designed. One of the idea I am thinking is these
"displays" being driven
by the elements - such as water, wind, etc.
Thanks so much!
