Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton

facebooktwitterlinkedinby featherJB Danny Elfman

Danny Elfman pictureI’m grateful to my relationship with my dear cousin, Blossom Elfman, Danny’s mother, who 2 years ago re-connected me with Danny Elfman. Thank you Danny for so graciously receiving Iris and I and our dear friends Vinny and Ann Marie.

Often the sound track to movies are nothing but background. Your music is different. It is deeply connected to the story, often fueled by Tim Burton’s enormously creative powers.

From the moment we heard the eerie sound of the theramin to the standing ovation at the end, I and the rest of the audience were all deeply moved and even occasionally surprised never really knowing what new melody or strange sound you would throw at us next.

Having the NY Philharmonic with full choir perform your work, must have been a dream come true for you. My personal favorite, Edward Scissorhands. Your Oingo Boingo roots heard, loud and clear. Hugs to you and your beautiful family.  Looking forward to many years of listening to your magical music.
