Tell me about original ways to make music.

I think it could be very inspirating to write a song (with a
notepad sequencer
or something) while sitting in a tree.

Another way I want to try is to play something with my synth
for about 3 minutes and record it on a tape. (using a
metronome to keep the rhytm tight)
Then put that tape in another tape-deck and put another tape
in the recording-tape-deck and play the tape with the
recorded signal while mixing it with another live-played
sequence and also record this.

Repeat [1] a couple of times and you've just made a song
without using any expensive sequencer or computer!
(ok you need a mixer, but I got the idea of this when I was
thinking of a new way to combine my hardware without using
the computer)

yes, it can be done that way, but the result is often
hideous, I have a tascam 4-track and the tracks I have on
the mulitudes of tapes are fit to be burned

i have a 4-track as well, the only thing i used it for was
guitar and vocal recording, but now i have my sblive, i just
use a friendly little program called SAWPLUS32 (32 track
recording...), but if I have an idea and don't want to turn
the pc on, i just record straight from my non-midi keyboard
to tape, maybe with backing drums or something, you know,
just for ideas...

Converting some sort of natural phenomena into music. An
example would be using panning and volume just right to give
the illusion of a 3-d environment. Or converting something
you observe that is interesting, the complexity of leaves
blowing in a tree, the path a pebble takes down a river, I
don't know. It would be possible with modplug tracker, it
would just take a year to make 5 minutes of sound.
