NOTES
Footage taken from two performances of Into the Woods. MainStage was used for the following samples: chimes, crotales, timpani, and electronic drums. Part 11, "Hello Little Girl" should be brushes on snare. Part 35, "The Potion" the sandpaper block sound effect was programmed into the keyboard book so this was omitted in percussion.
