Ep. 110 - Danny Elfman's 'Sleepy Hollow'
It's Halloween! • Fantasy, Horror, Music, Mystery, 25-Oct-2021
Halloween wouldn't be complete without featuring a score by Danny Elfman, especially in a film directed by Tim Burton! Winning the Golden Satellite Award, the score is a masterful mix of swelling choral and orchestral cues combined with everything one would expect from a suspenseful score. It is without question that Elfman's creative relationship with Burton is unparalleled, and we hope it will continue! Enjoy the beginning of this film highlighting the score cue, "Introduction".
