There's a Walter Marchetti LP which features a piece consisting of hurling
large rocks off a cliff into a pond below. Sound-wise, it resembles the
passage of stool (a similiarity also noted by Revolver).
There's also a memorable song called "My Girlfriend Is a Rock" by the 70s
Texas punk band, the Nervebreakers. A sample verse goes like:
"My girlfriend is a rock
she looks like a piece of chalk
or maybe alibaster
I guess you'd have to ask her!"
Toshiya Tsunoda (of the unbelievably wonderful WrK collective from
Japan) has also done some mesmerizing work that involves concrete and
air spaces inside heavy structures.
