Example text

While it took over a decade for full musical accompaniment to become commonplace, ‘the audience of a silent film would very possibly hear a different accompaniment to the same film in a different cinema, or even from one screening to the next’ (Davison 2004, 19). Despite this variation in content, in each performance the audience ‘would hear a continuous musical accompaniment which bore a loose relationship to the narrative action’ (Davison 2004, 19). While the soundtrack, as it exists today, remained an alien concept to film producers during the silent era, by the mid-1920s they had started to appreciate the commercial value of film songs.

Telotte, in 20 Demystifying Disney The Mouse Machine: Disney and Technology (2008), understandably chooses to focus on the Studio’s development of sound animation; however, while his coverage of Disney is comprehensive, he only briefly engages with earlier and competing advances in sound animation. Several pages into his chapter on Disney’s development of sound, Telotte writes: ‘While Steamboat Willie was not . . the first Mickey Mouse cartoon – or even the first cartoon to employ sound – it is clearly the initial effort at designing a Mickey narrative with a consciousness of the various possibilities sound afforded’ (Telotte 2008, 27).

During the 1930s, Disney’s increasing drive for ever more realistic animation led to a number of in-house developments, with the most notable being the multiplane camera – an apparatus used to create three-dimensionality within an animated image.
