Default Skippin' rocks

Apparently, skipping rocks across a frozen lake makes a damn cool sound...

Who knew?

Saw this yesterday, as someone who's dabbled in audio engineering/sound design, it's awesome

And inspiring

I knew, as I've done it before, but that's from the time before camcorders.

It almost sounds like what you'd use for a blaster of some sort in a sci-fi flick. (Trivia; the iconic blaster sounds in Star Wars were caused by basically whacking a tuning fork against a radio tower's guy wires)

I just love the look on Cory's face when he hears the noise for the first time LOL

Luke's landspeeder engine: Freeway recorded through a PVC pipe
Lightsaber: 35mm cinema projecter mixed with the sound of a faulty microphone cable picking up interference from being waved in front of a TV

Chewie's voice -- Driving on a gravel driveway + animal sounds + somebody's grandma, all mixed together, possibly with some other stuff in there.

There's a reason why they're called Foley Artists.
