I heard of the Mozzi database of sounds for Arduino after reading a paper(1) from the ICAD 2013 (International Conference on Audio Displays) conference which referenced its creation and development.

“Currently your Arduino can only beep like a microwave oven. Mozzi brings your Arduino to life by allowing it to produce much more complex and interesting growls, sweeps and chorusing atmospherics.”

The example sounds are lovely, I particularly recommend ‘A chordal wash of detuned oscillator pairs’ which reminded me of something I might hear in a Radiolab podcast.

“These experiments have led to the initiation of an open source sonification synthesizer project called Mozzi on github [10]. You can download and freely use Mozzi under the open source license in your own embedded sonifications [10]. You can also add your own extensions by forking the source. We hope that Mozzi will enable a wave of embedded sonifications.”
