Steve's Sound Design for Blackberry

Postby heartofdavid on Wed Sep 01, 2010 7:36 am

Just saw this on Steve's site:

"...the new blackberry torch released in the US this month features sound design elements created by steve. key elements include ringtone themes 'zen' and 'zen spirit' (said to be default ringtone on non at&t models out later this month), and alarm compositions 'tokyo morning' and 'morning blues'."

I remember reading this when it was first posted, but it wasn't until seeing the recent post on Steve's site about how he had composed the 'spirit' ringtone - heavily featured in Kevin Spacey's Netflix remake of House Of Cards - that I realized that it was THAT ringtone.

Unwittingly, it was on my own work phone and not a day does by when I don't hear it at work or on the train.

This must be Steve's most famous composition! Talk about 'Steve, Everywhere'...

Some new ringtone compositions from Steve as announced on his website. I couldn't find them via the itunes store on my computer, but could access them via itunes on an iPhone.

Image

'transience' - a 20 second rhythm loop (karn & jansen circa 1990) overlaid with ascending synth notation

Image

'innocence' - a light, repetitive melody evolving over 19 seconds with an emerging percussive layer

Image

'inexistence' - an 11 second sustained chordal flourish layered with various chimes resolving with digital percussion

available in the itunes store - search: steve jansen | category: ringtones
