The Future World Soundtrack Series
A series of double-disc albums showcasing the musical history of Epcot’s Future World pavilions.
All music in the FWSS (although substantially enhanced from the originals) was compiled from freely available sources found on/in multiple sites and is strictly intended for historical/educational purposes only.
Heralding each upcoming release, the “Epcot Clef” is customized each time to abstractly represent the pavilion’s theme. The image itself is intentionally displayed larger than the screen and specifically designed to take advantage of below-the-fold principle with the viewer “reading” the teaser from top to bottom for dramatic effect.

Each cover features a consistent style of chrome/sliver text and postcard-like image of the featured pavilion’s exterior architecture. Each image is enhanced with “Robert McCall-esque” flares and cloudscapes.
Each cover features a postcard-like image of the pavilion with enhanced sky effects and ethereal/futuristic light rays emanating from a logical light source.
INSIDE COVER ART
Each release includes the creation of Pavilion Line Art and (often) recreations of pavilion logos and/or attraction marquees that are displayed in a historical-referenced color scheme, signature neon-glow and thematically appropriate treatment.
4. Disc Images
Represented here is the cover art for “Disc 1” of each album that feature iconic “fantasy” photo of the pavilion’s interior that are tinted to reflect a corresponding color scheme.
For each release of the series careful consideration is given to consistency and format. Disc One has a rigid set of standards that typically require a circular or spherically composed interior photo radial tinted in the pavilion’s dominate color scheme.
Additionally, each disc must contain a subtle but nevertheless improbable “fantasy” element, including things like painting extension (Energy), a lightless zero-gravity growing drum (The Land) or a dome-less pavilion (Wonders of Life).
Each track of the FWSS, features an embedded “ID3 Tag” with fully researched copyright, artist(s), and year information including customized album art specifically designed for small-scale display.
