Max Richter – The Ringtone Album
These days, any music artist looking to make a dollar is licensing their songs for use as ringtones. As the ringtone industry becomes more mature, ringtones are being used in a variety of unique ways. But Max Richter, a German-born composer based in Edinburgh, is taking the ringtone to a new level. His most recent work, 24 Postcards In Full Colour, is a collection of original songs that have been recorded for use specifically as ringtones. The songs vary in length, but the average arrangement lasts 60 seconds.
