Music software recommendations

I want to experiment with a highly-specific musical experiment I'm calling "Sculpted Noise". To achieve this, I need to achieve two stages.

1-

I'm looking to use a "thieving magpie" approach by ripping short (around 1 second) fragments of sound from my CD collection- single notes and the like. Then I want to attack these tiny fragments of sound by stretching them or generally buggering around.
I plan on assembling a complete blizzard of these very brief sounds over a number of looping bars so you get a chaotic deluge of samples all happening at once.

2-

Once this looping collage is set up, I'll start removing samples from it. It's a scultural approach- I'll chip away at it until a song emerges from it (whatever that might be).


As I know bugger all about music software, can anyone suggest what could achieve this?
