Thanks for your suggestions. Yes rhead, I do listen to some post-rock like God Speed and Explosions in the Sky. Haven't listened to Bass Communion, but that song sounds interesting. But What I am looking for is something with a lot of texture. Here are the two songs that got me thinking about this.
The firework burning sound in the beginning of this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgx7gzfCM5I
And the squishy melody in this song (it gets better in the middle): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zctNbli5JD4

I had heard of this before from an episode of Radiolab, but had not considered it. This is interesting... I wonder if there is anything more "audio" tailored, rather than just a bunch of static filled youtube clips. You would think that if it was all about the ears, someone would be doing this in a controlled environment with quality equipment.
