Chelsea is out of town again, and the previous ringtones I recorded for her are probably starting to get on her nerves, so I spent yesterday and today recording her a new one. This one is an electric ukulele/bass arrangement of the glockenspiel music Papageno plays to protect himself, and Pamina, from Monostatos in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute).

The recording consists of four tracks with the melody trading off between the first two. The harmonics proved too hard for me to play in real time, so I recorded only a few measures at a time, and pasted them together in post production:

  1. Electric ukulele melody 1
  2. Electric ukulele melody 2 (harmonics)
  3. Electric ukulele chords
  4. Electric bass
