The sound of hard drives failing...

... is suprizingly soothing, at least when processed through a sampling program. Here's all 100 such tracks if you're so inclined.

Some background: This was a project wherein folks were encouraged to create a song using samples of drives in various stages of crapping out that were posted on the Hitachi website as part of a troubleshooting guide.

That does sound nice. I actually feel more relaxed than before I listened to it -- which is good because I'm now dealing with the after effects of my work laptop's HDD dieing during the same weekend a power failure corrupted the production DB's at the company I work for. My laptop's HDD sounded like the the thumpy HDD that provided the beat for the song. It was not soothing.
