LG G2 to come preloaded with music from the Vienna Boys Choir
The LG G2 is going to come to market with something a little unusual preloaded on the phone. The Vienna Boys' Choir has worked its harmonic magic for 9 ringtones and 5 notifications and alarms that will be included on the new model. Bach’s Air on the G String is one of four chimes that will be available on the handset when it is released. The device will be unveiled during an international event on August 7th.

The Vienna Boys' Choir dates back 500 years and the group currently performs about 300 concerts a year in front of 500,000 fans globally. The members of the Choir mostly hail from Austria, but some represent other countries as well. Starting on Thursday, those visiting the LG G2 microsite (www.G2.LGMobile.com) will be able to download for free the Life’s Good ringtone sung by the Vienna Boys’ Choir as well as other free music.

This is not LG's first attempt to humanize cellphone sounds using the human voice to replace the sounds of technology. Back in 2006, the Korean OEM had Swedish acappella group, The Real Group use their talent to copy cellphone sounds using their voices. Four years later used the orchestra  of Ennio Morricone to create sounds used on its smartphone lineup.

I guess LG ran out of ideas a long time ago.
