In honor of Mother’s Day, I went over to my friend Deesha’s house to work on some special ringtones. Deesha and I both lost our mothers to cancer within the last few years, so this post and these special ringtones are dedicated to the women who brought us into the world–Loretta Foley and Phyllis Philyaw.
Deesha’s daughters, Taylor and Peyton, worked with me to create these special tones. Here’s Peytie’s ABC Tone. Taylor takes the lead on the second tone, which I’m calling Momtone. When I got home, I recorded some tiny old Christmas bells (which I inherited from my family, and use strung up over my door knob as an alert signal). I edited the Christmas bells into a 2nd mix of Momtone, and was surprised how much it changed the girls’ “Mom!” improv. I’ll call this remix the Otherworld Mothertone. See what you think–feel free to comment.
In the next three days, I’ll be posting each of the ladies’ original tones–Deesha’s, Taylor’s and Peytie’s. I’ll be sure to tell you more about them in the individual posts.
