Not the big, rumbling wall of snow coming down the side of a mountain with the sole intention of killing you, but rather the Australian electronic music group who gave us this in 2000:

TIL that the manufacture of this sort of musical composition is called “plunderphonics” – the ‘theft’ of various soundbites and samples and their amalgamation into some sort of musical collage.

Plunderphonics is a term coined by composer John Oswald in 1985 in his essay Plunderphonics, or Audio Piracy as a Compositional Prerogative.

Must have missed that one. Sorry, John.

Either way, this is a great example of it, as was this earlier in the week.
