Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved

In anticipation of the October 21, 2014 worldwide launch of Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved, a diverse group of creatives, technology enthusiasts and executives met in The Event Space #DTLA (Downtown Los Angeles) in order to gain a first look and chance to experience the award-winning game.

Hosted by legendary DJ/Producer Keith Shocklee of Public Enemy, #Playcade, the first in a pop-up playground series, provided a space where creatives and executives could share interactive audio, visual and gaming design and talk shop over a beer.

The primary goal of the #Playcade Pop-up Playground Series goal is to foster a more creative and diverse future through partnerships and communication in order to evolve the fields of entertainment and technology.

The result of a collaboration between the Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved team and leading electronic music and DJ school DubSpot, the audio production and remixing of many of the game’s tracks premiered during the event via special DJ performances and presentations through a Peavey Electronics sound system.

Trip Digital Inc., a music production company that designs sound for film, TV, video games and commercials, aimed to bring together these communities as well as raise awareness about its services and newly launched event space in LA.

“As DJs we are used to mixing things together to create a vibe,” says Ravin Dave, Trip Digital Partner and Project Strategist. “In today’s fast-moving digital environment, technology has enabled others to mix things together much more easily. But it’s important that in the mixing process, we mix in real, live experiences and human interaction as well. That’s why the collaboration makes sense.”
