I have used many different songs as alarm sounds in my lifetime. What I have realised is that the most suitable songs are the ones featuring a natural but short crescendo, usually in their intro.
I recently decided that I wanted to wake up to an alarm sound that was composed by me.
Following my “alarm sound axiom” and since I absolutely love compositions that involve stringed instruments, I thought of throwing an orchestral twist to the – already classic, albeit in a different sense – alarm sound.
Feel free to download this and use it as your alarm sound or ringtone.
