Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Taking advantage of Danny Elfman's meteoric rise to success as a film composer, MCA Records compiled an admirable collection of the man's most memorable and bizarre film and television scores from the 1980s. Some of the 17 tracks on MUSIC FOR A DARKENED THEATRE are actually score excerpts (including PEE WEE's BIG ADVENTURE, BATMAN, and NIGHTBREED) other tracks are simply main themes (including THE SIMPSONS, TALES FROM THE CRYPT, and BACK TO SCHOOL). If anything, the compilation offers a glimpse into the twisted mind of one of cinema's most musically flamboyant, if not schizophrenic composers. Elfman's loose grasp on musical reality created a new dimension for film music, just as his band Oingo Boingo did for 1980s new wave pop.

Producer: Richard Kraft; Bob Badami

Artist Overview

Well-known as both the frontman of new wave cabaret act Oingo Boingo and as perhaps the most acclaimed film composer of the late-20th/early-21st century, Danny Elfman is one of the most talented and enigmatic figures in pop music. In addition to composing the theme song to THE SIMPSONS television program, Elfman has also had a long-standing relationship with filmmaker Tim Burton, having composed scores for nearly all of Burton's films. Elfman's eclectic influences contribute to an almost unmistakable sound, one that has carried over into orchestral compositions like 2005's SERENADA SCHIZOPHRANA.
