Found object is a loan translation from the French objet trouv, describing art created from undisguised, but often modified, objects or products that are not normally considered materials from which art is made, often because they already have a non-art function. Like the results from automatic writing and readymades, Found Objects offers an approximation of those techniques in sound by repurposing displaced phrases and timbres, pitches, restatements, and treatments as the root technique. K. Leimer describes it this way: "I worked toward a greater variety of outcomes between each of the pieces, with the goal of providing a more diverse listening experience. At the same time it became important to avoid any specific sense of adhering to a particular genre." After eleven months in the studio, Found Objects finally became music, but only as the result of almost continuous, arbitrarily redirected accidents.
