    Doing Sound Design for local childrens theatre... need help.

    Hey gang,

    I'm acting as sound designer for our local production of the Little Mermaid. I've hit a stumbling block, we need a theme for the Little Mermaid, and I was hoping someone here might know of a pretty piece of music similar to the Main Titles on the Disney Mermaid CD. It would be really helpful if someone knew what inspired Alan Menken, or knew of a similar piece that has the chimes and that magical under the sea enchanting emotion.


    Thanks, hopefully someone can help me overcome this hurdle.

    If you get the Broadway recording of the Little Mermaid, the first track is the overture and I think its gorgeous. You might want to give it a listen to see if that is what you are looking for.

    Some of the pieces from 'Carnival of the Animals' are nice. How about Aquarium or the Swan?

    Well, thanks for the input guys.
    Sadly, both of those were vetoed in favor of something else.
