Tiny Music Makers

From way back in 2005, here are some nice pocket histories of five short but ubiquitous songs, if you could call them that, in the words of their composers (Apple start up chord, THX sound, Microsoft sound, etc.)

“He had developed what is now called the THX sound system. It was to premiere with Lucasfilm’s “Return of the Jedi.” They were making a logo to go before the film. I was asked by the producer of the logo piece to do the sound. He said he wanted “something that comes out of nowhere and gets really, really big!” I allowed as to how I figured I could do something like that.”
