Sounds from the famous Vienna Boys’ Choir will come preloaded on the soon-to-be-launch LG G2, the Korean company has announced.
LG worked closely with the choir on a series of “unique harmonic sounds” including 9 ringtones and 5 notifications and alarms, as well as 4 musical chimes like Bach’s Air on the G String.
Those of you living under a rock should know that the Vienna Boys’ Choir is one of the oldest and most famous boys’ choirs in the world. For nearly 500 years it has been a symbol of Austria and currently performs in about 300 concerts a year before half a million music lovers all over the globe. Lately, however, the boys were experiencing financial difficulties and this deal with LG could bring-in some much-needed cash.
In the same press release, LG reminds us this isn’t their first such gig. In 2006, they worked with the Swedish “The Real Group,” to mimic cell phone sounds using human voices; and in 2010, they’ve included the actual orchestra sounds of Ennio Morricone to its smartphone line-up.
Starting on August 1, the Life’s Good ringtone sung by the Vienna Boys’ Choir along with some other tunes will be available for download through the LG G2 microsite.
