And you thought those folio skills were only good for movies!
The Austin American Statesman got an interview with Tracy Bush, audio director for NCSoft's North American headquarters. Ever wonder where some of the neat sounds in Tabula Rasa came from? Find out!
Tracy Bush strides into his cramped office with a frying pan in one hand and an electric razor in the other.
"Let me show you something," he says as he turns on the razor, scraping it against the bottom of a Teflon frying pan.
Zzzwwwaaa. It's a whining, metallic sound, like a cross between a mower and chainsaw. But Bush hears something else.
"If you take the same sound and pitch it down a couple of octaves, suddenly you've got this huge, great (alien space) ship exhaust sound," Bush said. "All from stuff you'd find around the house."
