In 2015, I released many themed “packages” of ASMR ringtones, including sounds for different kinds of notifications and alarms. With a ringtone package, a user could customise her phone so that all of its sounds followed on a theme.
My 2015 themes included:
OBJECT-ORIENTED ALERTS (OOA)
In 2017, I re-released my initial ringtones, along with several more themes:
“MY MONARCH, ELON MUSK. OUR MONARCH, ELON MUSK, AND HIS BODY. ELON MUSK, OUR MONARCH, OUR LEVIATHAN” (2015)
“SOFTWARE IS EATING THE WORLD” (2015)
“TOO BUSY TO BUILD THE HYPERLOOP” (2015)
I’ve had many people tell me that ringtones “aren’t a thing any more”, but on Android you can customize your notification sounds with almost laughable granularity – why not give it a try? I hope to re-release SHUSH TONES in the future, but in the meantime, if you’d like some additional soothing sounds for your phone, please write me.
For reference, the wayback machine has a semi-functional version of the original SHUSHTONES website (sans some functionality and styling) availble here. The website was built in 2015 and revisited / redesigned in 2017 for an exhibition at Panke Gallery, Berlin. [press]
