About Danny Elfman

A native of Los Angeles, Danny grew up in the Baldwin Hills neighborhood where he developed a love of cinema from a young age. His hobbies would expand to include music, joining the school band and starting a string of low profile band mostly in the ska genre. As his music matured he would find himself unfulfilled by his studies, spending the later years of his youth in Europe and Africa as a traveling musician. He would bounce between France, Ghana, and Mali, surrounding himself in local musical influences and integrating them into his distinctive musical style.

He would eventually return to Los Angeles, and begin spending time at the California Institute of the Arts, focusing his studies on world music and bringing his considerable knowledge of local sounds to his instructors and fellow students. He would expand his musical retinue by forming his first mainstream band, The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, which would later shorten its name to Oingo Boingo and become one of the most fundamental members of the new wave movement of the 70s. They would frequently tour all across North America, changing the landscape of the music scene for nearly two decades deciding to call it quits in 1995. Oingo Boingo remains one of the most influential bands of the 70s and 80s, with their musical influences reverberating through the years and into today.

Elfman would become involved in writing his first film score in the mid 1980s, after forming a friendship with visionary director Tim Burton and getting offered the spot of composing on the classic hit Pee-wee's Big Adventure. Alongside fellow Oingo Boinger Steve Bartek, the duo would floor Tim Burton with their musical work, and Elfman would go on to form a long working partnership with Burton that is still alive today. He would work extensively on Corpse Bride as well as the mega hit Nightmare Before Christmas. Aside from his work on the musical score, he would be the singing voice of Jack Skellington, score two other minor parts in the film, and voice Bonejangles in Corpse Bride.

Danny has branched out even further into other musical mediums, including composing a show for Cirque de Soleil, a composition written for the American Composers Orchestra titled "Serenada Schizophrana", work for the world famous Hollywood Bowl Orchestra titled "The Overager Overture". His recent work in film, aside from his work with Tim Burton, includes work on a Houdini biopic as well as James Franco's 2013 film adventure Oz the Great and powerful.


Previous Hits

Elfman's list of hits extends decades, with countless accolades accompanying almost ever major release. Amongst his work include the soundtracks for movies such as: Tim Burton's 1987 cult classic film Beetlejuice; Randal Kleiser's Big Top Pee-wee; 1989's Grammy award winning Batman, again directed by Tim Burton; Edward Scissorhands; Sam Raimi's Army of Darkness; The 1996 Mission Impossible remake, starring Tom Cruise; Will Smith's iconic film Men in Black; Good Will Hunting; The 2001 remake of Planet of the Apes; Again with Sam Raimi in 2002's Spider-Man, starring Toby McGuire; and the 2013 breakout hit American Hustle.


Trivia

One of the reasons Elfman quit performing with Oingo Boingo is due to his hearing. He claims he has a genetic disposition towards hearing loss, and countless years on the stage has only accelerated the loss of his hearing.
