Blue Suede

Collage #1 (“Blue Suede”), based on Elvis Presley’s version of Blue Suede Shoes was realized [by James Tenney] at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, in the electronic music studio established by Lejaren Hiller. It has long been considered something of a classic of American musique concrète.

The above is from electrocd, which has more information, as does wikipedia. I found about this through Pitchfork’s review of The KLF’s ‘Chill Out’, which, of course, is the best album of all times.
