Hindemith had played with this too, as had members of the Bauhaus. As I
recall, Cage's Imaginary Landscapes No 1 used RCA Victor "Test Records"
(which I would image contained tones and noises).

If the consideration is one of collage, and the use / re-use of existing
materials, then the pioneer would appear to be Charles Ives. His work
paralleled "collage" in the visual arts, following and around cubism.
