"The Seduction of Claude Debussy" is an ambitious 1999 concept album by Art of Noise, featuring a lineup of Trevor Horn, Anne Dudley, Paul Morley, and Lol Creme. Also appearing on the album are John Hurt, Sally Bradshaw, Rakim, and Donna Lewis. The group blended the music of groundbreaking French impressionist composer Claude Debussy with drum and bass, opera, hip hop, jazz, and narration, and described the album as "the soundtrack to a film that wasn't made about the life of Claude Debussy."

In 2000, the Art of Noise released "Reduction", a limited edition album comprised mainly of out-takes from this album.
