Architecture is frozen speed metal

Sasha Frere-Jones of The New Yorker on ringtones:

‘An architect in her mid-thirties said, “I spent three days of
productive work time listening to polyphonic ringtone versions of speed
metal, trying to find exactly the ringtone that expressed my
personality with enough irony and enough coolness that I could live
with it going off ten times a day. In a quiet room, in a meeting, this
phone’s gonna go off—what are they going to hear?”’

I think I must know this person.
