That THX theme: “Deep Note,” the score and visual wav file

by David Ng

In case, you don’t know what I’m referring to, check out this link.

“The THX logo theme consists of 30 voices over seven measures, starting in a narrow range, 200 to 400 Hz, and slowly diverting to preselected pitches encompassing three octaves. The 30 voices begin at pitches between 200 Hz and 400 Hz and arrive at pre-selected pitches spanning three octaves by the fourth measure. The highest pitch is slightly detuned while there are double the number of voices of the lowest two pitches.” (From the US Trademark registration).
