I have only recently thought about customized ring tones. Curious to know what your ring tones are and how you chose them. Particular favorites? '

I use the opening part of the prelude to Le Nozze di Figaro.  It was the best of the tones I had at my disposal, though better may now be available.  I'm thinking I'd like to use part of Boulez's first piano sonata.

I use a ringtone which was already programmed in my Nokia: Chopin's Minute Waltz.

Mine is from Ein Heldenleben, Der Held, when the violins play the chromatic lines which lead into the fff horn passage.

I can upload for you an mp3 custom made for cell phone. You'd need to transfer it then somehow from your computer to your phone depending on what sort of connectivity your phone has: bluetooth, infrared or some sort of cable.

For awhile I was using various 12-tone rows from Lulu and Wozzeck  ;D, but now I have a simple "ding" tone that repeats about every 2 seconds.

Hmm, I have absolutely no clue how to transfer it to my phone. Getting a new phone in a few months, anyhow.  :-\

Brahms, Hungarian Dance #5.

Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."
