We need 3 notification sounds for a mobile application we are about to release named Kukay (firefly). The visual identity of the app is a firefly and the general concept is a social app that utilizes the simplicity of firefly communication and gives the user a more sophisticated version of that utility to meet other users in their immediate surroundings. So the sound should evoke the feeling of an electronic or biomechanical firefly. Inspirations should be modern electronic music (although the sounds should be very short and simple), sci-fi, insects or electronic insects (the friendly kind, not the intimidating kind), and maybe a bit of the 16 bit video game sound, which has found its way into modern electronic music so perhaps that's redundant, but you get the idea. These sounds should obviously be mastered for optimal sound on mobile devices. The quality, simplicity and ease of listenability (as these are notification sounds, they can't get annoying after hearing 100 times in one evening) should be as good as something Apple would use for a stock sound. They have done an excellent job with their notification sounds and we want to emulate that success.
Sound 1 will signify the firefly lighting up or turning on/becoming active, flashing, or sending its signal out into the digital space around it. Again, very simple and ear friendly, but interesting and evoking the appropriate image.
Sound 2 will signify receiving the signal, a connection made with another user. So it should be similar, but it should feel subtly exciting, sort of a "success!" feeling but again, not overpowering.
Sound 3 should be an extremely short sound to signify a received message. It should feel cohesive with the other 2 sounds and have the same basic elements, but even shorter, simpler and easier to hear multiple times.
