The 8th episode of Film Music Fridays, narrated by CineConcerts President, Producer & Conductor Justin Freer! In this week’s episode, Justin talks about Tim Burton’s iconic film Beetlejuice, the 1988 fantasy comedy with the unique and wonderful score by Danny Elfman, which would be his second collaboration with Burton. Justin talks about the specific elements of Elman’s score that make it incredibly fun, unique, and how it would ultimately lay the foundation for the Elfman/Burton collaboration over the next three decades. Elfman has continued to define himself as one of the true masters of the film scoring craft, and has left a legacy of great music not only from his time as the frontman of Oingo Boingo, but in the overarching cinematic universe.
