Lou's background music
Especially in the recent 'casts about Celebration 25, Lou has been using a lot of the EPCOT pathway music. Where the heck do you get that stuff, because I've always loved that music, and the only one I can find is "EPCOT Entrance Music" (the one with the rapid violins and the snippets of Energy (You Make the World Go 'Round) in). But, in this last 'cast, there was track after track of great stuff in the background, some of which I had forgotten even existed. Are these available somewhere I'm not aware of? Well, apparently, but where?
And, for the record, I've been a major fan of Mike Jittlov for a long time. Really cool guy. Go find his movie, "The Wizard of Speed and Time." You won't regret it. If you can find it.
I've wondered where to get that as well. I saw a Disneyland box set on Amazon that includes some of the ambient music. Also curious, Lou, did you have to get a license or permission to use that music or is it fair use when you're discussing the park?

I know there was discussion in a previous episode, I want to say July or August, about a web site where you could download disney music from the parks and not just all the movie and animated feature stuff you can find on Itunes or Amazon.
Anyone have any ideas as to the name and or address of that site?
I love the background music!

Not sure if this is the site you are talking about. I haven't really looked much at it so I don't know what it has to offer but I think I got the link on these forums...........MouseBits - Index I would love to know where I could get the music from the Wilderness Lodge loop. Anyone know?
mousebits.com has almost everything that I've ever looked for. I know that they do have Wilderness Lodge loops, and the Epcot music I think you're talking about is probably Innoventions area loop, which is also on mousebits

Thanks Nick, I looked at the site last night again and I realized why I didn't sign up previously when I looked at the site, I didn't see any of the sounds clips they provided (sorry they may not be the right terminology). Anyway I also found another site Disney Theme Park Audio and Music :: Subsonic Radio :: User Information which looks a little easier to navigate. I'm still looking at it so I'm not really sure if it has what I'm looking for but it looks like it has alot. Nick do you know the difference between any of these sites? I know some of them want you to pay. Is that how they all work?

Subsonic Radio is just an internet radio station. I believe you have to pay money for "points" that you can use to purchase a track to play. You cannot download anything from the site.
Mousebits is the best thing on the internet, for downloading park audio / video. Any if you ever have a request, feel free to post it in the Mousebits fourms.
Thanks for clearing that up for me horizons, I will check out mousebits again

Smack81, I will defer to Horizons to answer that since I am really not sure myself. When I have time I am going to take a day and go through both of those sites throughly.

The one I use is Azureus and you can find more information about it at Azureus : Java BitTorrent Client. Once you download the torrent file (file extension .torrent), you double-click it and that launches the client and puts the file the torrent file points to in your download queue. Now, torrent technology can be used for copyright infringement purposes and so forth, so I certainly don't condone that, but the files hosted on MouseBits are torrents, so something like Azureus will be necessary to download them. To clarify, the actual file itself is an mp3 or an avi or some other normal format. The file that starts the download ball rolling, as it were, is the .torrent file.

Mousebits is amazing! not only is there park audio, but just about any Disney related TV special, and great ride throughs of extinct attractions. I personally love the disney resort torrent with music from the WL, GF, Dixie Landings(POR), and the greatest the polynesian. To those of you who don't understand torrent. Dont worry its easy. Read the how to on the mousebits dscussion board.
I know this has been said but, Mousebits is a great site. I have run out of space on my computer because of it!

Thanks for the info on torrents!
Thanks for the information on torrents vowell! I can totally see why Mousebits would take up a lot of room on someone's computer. I think I'm going to have to go buy some more blank CDs. That's a good problem to have, though - too much WDW audio!
