The band of children began to serenade us, play for us on instruments, make music - if you could call it music... Their insruments were instruments of percussion (...) As far as i could make out in the white blaze of the sand beach, the instruments were tin cans strung together and bits of metal... Other bits of metal that had been flattened out and made into cymbals... Tin cans flattened out and clashed together... Cymbals. The others had other things. All sort of things. Things that they'd made or picked up on the beach to make a sort of noise... A music made out of noise.

Elizabeth Taylor in Suddenly Last Summer
(Screenplay by Tenessee Williams)
