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!

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)
