“Experience Music Project is honored to survey this rich history and commemorate Disney’s impact in this exhibition.” – EMP Artistic Director Bob Santelli
On November 4, 2006, the new exhibit Disney: The Music Behind the Magic opened in Seattle’s Experience the Music Project. The exhibit, also honoring Walt Disney Records’ 50th anniversary, began in the 1930s with original scores and storyboards for the earliest Disney films, to the multitude of pop stars that have had hits through the label. The event also featured interactive elements for kids, including their own way of mixing vocals and creating sound effects. For adults, there were clips with explanations by musical experts, as well as pieces of important Disney milestones for all to see. The event ran until September 9, 2007.
