If you played ilomilo you might have noticed the orchestra talking in the song “music school”. That was initially an attempt to give voices to ilo and milo, as one of the an ideas was to have them sound like Winnie and Piglet from the russian version of Winnie the Pooh.
That did turn out a bit too extreme for little ilo and milo, in the end we even felt like they should be all silent. But I really liked how the voices came out so I decided to add them in that song as the musicians talking to each other after messing up the groove.
I also made a pipe smoking, coughing, tea drinking reader for the story parts. He used the same fake russian language made to sound similar to the narrator of Winnie Pooh. But that was cut out in the end. Sad face.
