about

Start Up / Shut Down is a set of short iterations, remixes, and refinements of Window and Macintosh operating system event sounds. This project features remixed material sourced from Microsoft Windows (3.1, 4.0, NT, 95, 98, Me, XP, Vista, 7, 8) and Macintosh OS (10.0 Cheetah, 10.1 Puma, 10.2 Jaguar, 10.3 Panther) operating systems.

The default computer sounds and stock plugins merge together with custom audio patches to examine the strict durational formatting and other standards found in the one-to-four second event sound. The resulting two five-minute tracks act as a set of hand-made alternatives to proprietary operating system sounds.
