We talk with musicologist (and Disney parks fan) Dr. Gregory Camp about how Disney chooses music to convey mood and theme inside its theme parks. We've added music to the re-release of this episode, so you can hear what we're talking about.
Dr. Camp is the author of "Mickey Mouse Muzak: Shaping Experience Musically at Walt Disney World" - a peer-reviewed paper that explores Disney theme park music. You can read the paper at www.cambridge.org/core/journals/journal-of-the-society-for-american-music/article/mickey-mouse-muzak-shaping-experience-musically-at-walt-disney-world/72153D79F0A596EC3DBCED02EFBDBAF0
