While Walt Disney may originally have been focused on getting animation up on the big screen and later, expanding animation’s hold on the people’s hearts, he probably had an inkling of how important the music of these shows would be. From Steamboat Willie to Mary Poppins to the Little Mermaid to Tarzan and further down the line, the music of Disney has stayed with many of us, long after we finished watching the shows.
There is a very special exhibit in Seattle Washington. Titled Disney: The Music Behind the Magic, it is the first exhibit of its kind. Anyone can go and experience being a music producer for Disney for a short time.?Test your knowledge of songs from the various?shows in?a Disney music trivia game. There are?four interactive displays to help you get a feel of the work that goes into creating the sound effects for any Disney production; and there’s still more to experience.?There has never been a museum exhibit as fun as this, and it is indeed a very special part of our history.
Anyone interested to enjoy this exhibit can go to?the Experience Music Project?at the Frank Gehry building, 325 5th Avenue North, Seattle, WA 98109.
