    Inside the 'Toy Story Mania!' scoring sessions

    Jennifer Hammond arranges Randy Newman's Toy Story scores for new Disney Attractions!

    Earlier this month, composer/orchestrator Jennifer Hammond was at the famed Capitol Records Studios recording new music for an exciting Disney Parks project. Taking themes from Randy Newman's two Toy Story films, Hammond arranged over sixty minutes of score, which will be used at two Disney theme parks: Disney's Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida, and Disney's California Adventure at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. In Orlando, the music will be heard on a continuous loop in a newly re-themed area called "Pixar Studios", and in Anaheim it will play while visitors to the park wait in line for the new "Toy Story Mania!" attraction. Both are scheduled to open later this spring.

    Woo hoo! An actual orchestral score, rather than synths (a la BLAB)!
    EDIT: And just for the heck of it, I thought I'd point out that the pianist, Randy Kerber, is the guy you hear doing all those amazing, tinkly celesta solos in Harry Potter.

    It bears mentoning, by the way, that this was to record the area music loops heard in Pixar Place and in both attractions.

    The score for the Toy Story Midway Mania attractions on both coasts was arranged by Bruno ****.
