I found this person's college map, or something while searching things related to this thread. It's a weird document, but in it is a whole list of crazy acoustic-meets-electronic artists that I'd never heard of. Most interesting so far I'd say is Xploding Plastix.

"Dizzy Blonde" is another Xploding Plastix track with heavy electronic maniupulation.
I've found a whole bunch of inspiration, so thank you for starting this thread!
edit: oh yeah! here's that person's project description:
