Something I just noticed

Postby JuniorGenius » Mon Jun 06, 2016 1:15 am

In the TV show Lost, in every jungle scene, the same birds/forest sound plays as the sound in the Riven jungle.

That is all.

Very interesting. You wouldn't happen to have links to clips from both for comparison, would you?

Are you 100% sure of that ?

The creaking wood in this Future Soldier demo sounds very similar to what you hear on the wooden walkways near the Jungle Island village.

Yeah, I'm trying to find the files atm.

Fairly confident.

I can't find any clips on YouTube with what I'm looking for. :/

I should also note that often it's layered with other sound effects

Which episode? I own the first 5 seasons on DVD. I could check it out.

Over the years I've recognized sounds from Myst/Riven in games and movies. Must be stock sounds from some commercial sound library.

Yeah I guess it must be.

Well at the time of posting I hadn't gotten past the first season, and I guarantee you can hear it in at least one of the first few episodes. (Obviously ones where they're in the jungle a lot in particular)

Okay I did it! Here's the best example I could find:
http://vocaroo.com/i/s18CkFqVitJc (It's not really audible until about halfway through)

And the sound file from Riven for example:

Yup. I do video work semi-professionally and own a couple of commercial stock sound effects libraries. Every now and then I come across a sound in my collection that I've heard in Myst/Riven.
Cosmic Osmo for iOS is a must!

Cool!
It might be fun to make a thread where people can submit where they've seen Riven sound effects used.
Thoughts?

I do recognize the one at 25sec in your first clip. Hard to miss. The rest... I'm not sure. All birds sound the same to me. I barely got through the final "Jungle" puzzle in The Witness. What a nightmare that was! :D

Which jungle puzzle in The Witness? O.o
Anyway, it's all the same sound playing throughout the clip I think, just that one loud bird call is the most distinctive sound
