Willy Wonka is a children's musical based off of the famous Roald Dahl novel. As a musical the environments were constant in flux with the music and some had music built into the environment itself.
The first is the unveiling of the factory interior which has the chocolate river flowing through it. I wanted to create a "Chuckie Cheese" experience so I created a Willy Wonka factory that has a casino feel in its design.
the second sample is the Bubble gum room in which a large machine spits out gum-balls. Music was built into the way this machine operates. I believe it worked very well with the beautiful choreography of Emily Penick onstage.
The third sound is the fizzy bubble room, a combination of computed beeps and bubbles.
Last the notorious Glass Elevator which read wonderfully onstage
