    Harp is very featured in the early sequences of the film Wall-E, performed by Gayle Levant and Katie Kirkpatrick.

    We went a few weeks ago– I loved the harp in that score! It sounded very much like an electric harp to me. Just bought the soundtrack yesterday for my kids. It lists the harpists names but didn’t say if it was electric harp or not. It did mention “rendered harp solo” by Steve Tavaglione.

    I was able to pick out some of it on the harp by ear –my kids were very delighted to hear me playing Wall-E!

    It’s a unique combination of acoustic and electronic, but certainly the opening cues are definitely acoustic harps.
