Vivid memories of exploring this site on the computer round an ex-girlfriend's house, no wonder she dumped me.

It was an interactive site, that's how it was.

nice, any idea if the old lexaunculpt site was saved somewhere?  That was probably my favorite of the old interactive sites.

the whole point of the vid is that the original site already cant be run on most browsers

I recorded this video because this beautiful site relies on Shockwave, a dying/dead format which can't be viewed in modern browsers. So I went ahead and loaded up IE 8 on a Windows 7 VM and installed Shockwave Player. Recorded in OBS, zoomed and edited with After Effects. The original view size was about 320px x 240px, truly a marvel in 2002 I'm sure, and I think it stands up today, 16 years later.

Yes, I know - the link was in reference to who created the site, and for anyone who would want to do this themselves per the YouTube video's description...

Wasn't this the default sound in the 747 track navigation, where you were furthest away from the pylons?

You're probably right.. it is the right tempo but I don't recall having heard it.

I have been very curious about that particular loop since it's obv inspired by (edit: or atleast very similar to) the societas track at 42 min (which is still not identified!)

Oooh, good catch - it might be used there!

When I first played the BOC Loops video, the first thing that popped into my mind was the "747" islands part.

I imagine BOC has an enormous library of 'vignette' sounds like this at their disposal...
