Re-Imagining the Journey

NEWS FLASH: Everything You’re Listening to Is Wrong!
Ok, well maybe not wrong but certainly incorrect. This was my thought process while dreaming up the Future World Soundtrack Series (FWSS). Whenever I would listen to the soundtrack of a certain attraction or a pavilion’s background music (BGM) I thought it was like I was listening to the actual soundtrack to a film; lots of “dead air”, starting and stopping abruptly, forensic editing, etc. I thought that the best way to present the FWSS was to completely ignore the historical context of the subject matter, and speaking as a historian this was in and of itself a radical concept. I wanted to create a “Listening Experience”. SO WHAT if things were not exactly labeled the way things are in the WDI archives, and who really cares if you play around with the order of things. It’s about the music!

"Notes" on the Future

With a mere five days from the launch of the Future World Soundtrack Series, the E82 Project is proud to release its 2nd Desktop Wallpaper. This monochromatic desktop, primarily features the FWSS "Future Notes" Logo. With beams of light emanating from its base, Spaceship Earth is surrounded by a TEXTure of 15 songs and score pieces that represent the history of Epcot music, from "We've Just begun to Dream" to "Celebrate the Future Hand in Hand."If you look at the Copyright you'll notice that this collection and, in fact, all of E82 has been slowing evolving over a period of several years.

Things to Come

In the near future, E82 will explore the soundtracks of tomorrow one pavilion at a time.
The following video offers a behind-the-scenes demonstration of the process of audio restoration.
Disclaimer: I feel I should warn you, I’m nothing more than a novice when it comes to video production. (I’m good with Images and Audio, but not really experienced with putting them together. So please excuse the poor quality of this my first foray into moving pictures)
NOTE: Watch the full video for a Special Announcement at the end.

 

 

Get ready to HEAR THE FUTURE like never before!

Spaceship Earthrise

This is the first of many desktop backgrounds coming to you from the E82. Spaceship Earth Dawn is based on the original cover for the EPCOT Center Pre-Opening Guide . In this, I wanted to capture the spirit of the original photography with the technology available today.
