"From colonies beyond the stars to cities beneath the sea, Horizons brings us to one important realization: if we can dream it, we can do it. And continues in the tradition of the unforgettable Carousel of Progress, presented by GE at the Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom. Take the trip of a lifetime. At Horizons. You'll go a lot farther than you've ever dreamed." — General Electric, promotional ad 

By (extremely) popular demand, a not-so-recent collaboration with Jason Bartel of Deep Water Studios has been retrofitted to become our latest background. Inspired by the famous 1983 (Close Encounters-esque) Ad for the (then) new attraction, this composition features Jason superior 3D Pavilion recreation with an enhanced lighting scheme and less than subtle depiction of the Centauri series of spacestations from attraction.

A Future World Christmas

A precious few things have remained unchanged in the ever-changing realm that is Future World. One of these is the holiday atmosphere that has been looping every Christmas season since 1983. But what if this seasonal soundscape was to be transformed into a forward-thinking compilation befitting Future World?

The Dawn of Simulations

From room-temperature lava to laser animation and advanced fiber optic displays, among EPCOT Center's many notable accomplishments was the development of close to 100 special effects (over 30% for Journey Into Imagination alone). Many of these were entirely new high-tech creations, while others were avant-garde reinterpretations of centuries-old illusions. 

Welcome to The Future World Simulation Series

In this series, we'll be exploring the many evocative special effects of EPCOT Center beginning, appropriately enough, at the dawn of time, with a recreation Spaceship Earth's hypnotic Lumia Effect...

Originally developed by 
Thomas Wildred in the 1920's, this technique of projecting refracted light was initially put into small custom-built cabinets for home use. And is now achieved largely thru laser projection. However, Spaceship Earth continues to achieve the effect through classical means and has done so for over 35 years - making it the longest-running special effect in the park.
