I'm in the process of watching this movie on netflix.com (if you have netflix you can watch it instantly) called "Touch the Sound". I found the preview for it awhile back, now that I am watching it for real it really strikes accord with what we did in Jason's class when we spent all that time in the basement playing with random pipes and barrels and whatever. I'm only thirteen minutes in and it has a slow start but it seems worth watching, especially since the musician the movie is centered around is deaf.

The FIRST ANIMAL TO communicate with sound.

"Radio 4 listeners will be exposed to sounds never heard by mankind before when they tune into The Sound of Life – a programme which takes the listener on an acoustic journey to discover the past, present and future of sound. In the first programme in the series, Aubrey Manning digs back into prehistory to find the first animal to ever communicate with sound."
