That Sound from the Prometheus Trailer

If you’ve watched the trailers for Ridley Scott’s film Prometheus, you’ve probably noticed the jarring sound that’s played over and over at the end. It’s a disturbing mix of a scream and an alarm.

Where have I heard that before? It’s not from any of the other Alien films. It was in the trailer for the original Alien film (also directed by Ridley Scott):

It’s a cool sound, maybe cool enough to be a ringtone?

    Sorry to write to you here Bob, but I can’t seem to find an email anywhere.

    I was wondering if you might have a GIF or similar of any version of Improv for the NeXT squirrelled away somewhere? I’d like to add it to the Wikipedia article, but I lost my NeXT files some time ago. Screen shots would be great too!

    You mention Improv 3.0 was being readied for release. Do you have any documentation about this version? Internal memos, initial marketing material, etc?
