My main goal for this track was to simply let players feel the awe, wander and epicness Spielberg and Cline imagined when entering a universe in VR for the first time. It’s meant to be more of an “experience” song than one that’s really difficult.
In the 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, Gene Wilder portrays Willy Wonka and sings “Pure Imagination” as the five chosen children and their parents enter the magical Chocolate Room. The room is full of imaginative confections. Cline stated that his inspiration for Ready Player One came from the golden ticket idea in Willy Wonka and so this song made an excellent trailer song for the movie.
