Electronica artist Adam Young, the musician behind the popular project Owl
City, is responsible for many of the new sound and ringtones in iOS 7
according to the discography on the musician's website (via _9to5Mac_).
Alongside the top-to-bottom redesign of the visual user interface in iOS 7,
Jony Ive's design team -- with Young's help -- also reworked all the sounds in
the OS as well. It isn't clear exactly which sounds Young worked on, though
many of the texting and ringtones sound similar to his music.
Some of Adam Young's more well-known songs, under the Owl City name, include
his breakout hit _Fireflies_, _Good Time_ with Carly Rae Jepsen, and _When Can
I See You Again?_ from Disney's Wreck-It Ralph.
Young began creating songs in his parents' basement, sharing tracks on MySpace
before signing with a record label and receiving commercial success. Like many
musicians, he uses Macs and a number of different software titles including
Apple's _Logic_, _Pro Tools_, and Propellerhead's _Reason_.
