Preserved Hammond Recordings
Above, you can download the original recording files in WAV format, organized in folders. Includes a complete "Credits" document in PDF format, packaged in ZIP format.
Presented for the first time are the entire available and unedited recordings of Richard Attenborough’s performance of John Parker Hammond from the DreamWorks Interactive PC Game Trespasser- The Lost World: Jurassic Park. These were the same files featured in Jurassic Time: The Memoir Of John Parker Hammond audio program, an audiobook-style presentation that included music from the game edited to carry the story. Most of the files are sourced from an early alpha version of the game that featured the best quality available. The retail version of the game featured degraded quality and dreamlike echo effects on the voice, whereas these are mostly the untouched recordings with fantastic sound. Some of the dialogue remains edited, in stereo, with minor atmospheric effects. A set of dialogue that reads an old diary entry sadly remains in intentionally degraded quality. Also included are a few alternate versions of the dialogue and some additional dialogue selected from the DreamWorks Interactive PC Game Chaos Island- The Lost World: Jurassic Park that is hard to come by (and sadly in poor quality).
In addition, the files created by a synthetic recreation of Richard Attenborough's voice using audio from Trespasser are also included. These were heard in the "Hammond's Lost Diary" tracks. They continue the rest of Hammond's intended story, as seen in the game's original script.
The files are all organized in folders in the order done for The Definitive Edition. It should be noted that in the game files themselves there was no storytelling order at all; just a scattered, incoherent mess. After over a decade of different versions of The Hammond Memoir, I decided it was finally time to have the recordings themselves easily accessible. While I still firmly believe The Definitive Edition is the best way to experience Hammond’s story, I know these files have been long-requested. So here they are; preserved for all time.
For an edited version of these files set to music, check out the audio program or watch the video program. To read an alternatively assembled version of what was written, check out the "excavated" book.
