‘Hearing Jurassic Park’, A Compilation of the Wonderful Dinosaur Sounds From the Original ‘Jurassic Park’

Hearing Jurassic Park” is a compilation edited by Jacob T. Swinney of the wonderful dinosaur sounds created by sound designer Gary Rydstrom for the original Jurassic Park.

Rydstrom also recently did an interview with Vulture where he explains how each individual dinosaur sound was created from organic sources like the sounds of different animals mating.

It’s a mating tortoise! I recorded that at Marine World … the people there said, ‘Would you like to record these two tortoises that are mating?’ It sounded like a joke, because tortoises mating can take a long time. You’ve got to have plenty of time to sit around and watch and record them.
