Danny Elfman – author. Over the last 30 years, four-time Oscar nominee Danny Elfman has established himself as one of the most versatile and accomplished film composers in the industry. Older audience members will remember Danny Elfman as the unmistakable singer of US group Oingo Boingo and his diverse film music work including Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Planet of the Apes, Sommersby and even TV series Desperate Housewives. However, the artist has no trouble appealing to fans across the generations with his scores for Tim Burton films such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and many more.
