Disney Appreciation

God, Disney animation is amazing and gorgeous. And even the CGI stuff is so beautiful. The movies are such a large part of my childhood and inspired me to really love animation.

Watching Disney just makes me happy.

How do you do? My name is Deems Taylor, and it’s my very pleasant duty to welcome you here on behalf of Walt Disney, Leopold Stokowski, and all the other artists and musicians whose combined talents went into the creation of this new form of entertainment, Fantasia. What you’re going to see are the designs and pictures and stories that music inspired in the minds and imaginations of a group of artists.

What is it about the Walt Disney Records: The Legacy Collection series that makes them so appealing? Is it the Mary Blair-esque packaging by Lorelay Bove? The small reproductions of the original concept art and character designs found inside? Or maybe it’s just the way they’re put together like tiny, little hardcover ‘Art Of’ books?

It’s all of this.

And THE MUSIC. Definitely the music!

Started off as a silly little doodle when I was thinking about the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra concert for the billionth time and then it turned into this. Why not celebrate one concert with the Disney concert that started it all?

Gosh, I could wax nostalgic for days about the concert. Music has been just an integral in my life as art, and the KH music is the reason why I got into arranging music in high school and beyond. To hear and see the music I’ve loved for years performed live gave me an even greater appreciation for compositional prowess of Yoko Shimomura, the dedication of the musicians (btw, most of the musicians at the concert probably learned the music about a week or two prior to the concert. AMAZING, RIGHT???), and the musical nuances of different instruments and arrangement choices. Absolutely stunning.
