Shaping sounds

The origins of the Netflix ‘sound’. Related, how Brian Eno composed the Windows 95 sound; the man behind the Intel ‘bongs’, the composer Walter Werzowa; the Contentious Tale of the McDonald’s “I’m Lovin’ It” Jingle; the THX ‘Deep Note’, composed by Lucasfilm sound engineer Dr. James ‘Andy’ Moorer / other things, British and Exotic Mineralogy, ‘all 2,242 illustrations from James Sowerby’s compendium of knowledge about mineralogy in Great Britain and beyond, drawn 1802–1817 and arranged by color.’ (via Kottke). To a mineralogist, is this a little bit like those people who arrange their bookshelves according to the colour of the spines? (i.e. controversial) / sort of related, a trip to Cordite Cove / a beginners’ guide to boutique guitar pedals / the synths of Duran Duran (related, the bass playing of Duran Duran).
