Cathedral Diminished

Submitted By Christian Cosas (csquared)


This pipe organ soundset uses both fully- and half-diminished chords, arpeggios, and runs. I created the alerts with the GarageBand Orchestra Jam Pack and Sound Studio.

This soundset, like my others, is a compositional experiment for me. I've designed this set to express a unified musical idea while also remaining simple and functional. Many other soundsets (including the official AIM and MSN alerts) merely resort to using basic major triads and consonant intervals like a perfect fifth or fourth. I wanted to develop something with a little more sophisticated music theory, incorporating dissonances and suspensions.

The sounds activate on the following events: Connect, Disconnect, Contact Sign On, Contact Sign Off, New Message Received, Message Sent, Message Received, and Error.
