Text Quotes
You have to write a good score that you feel good about. At least, you’re supposed to. But, if the director hates it, it ain’t going to be in the movie!  (Danny Elfman Quotes) Doing Tim’s film is always going to be the most pleasure. Let me just put it that way. So, without drawing favorites one way or the other, getting back with him and doing Mars Attacks! was certainly a special treat  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I’ll just start laying out the melody exactly where I want it to fall. and then I’ll go back and fill it out. Whereas, in other pieces I’m really just going a couple bars at a time  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I’m looking for a feel and I have to find what that feel is before I can move on from there. I’m not necessarily catching stuff in such a simple way - I don’t need to. So, I’m going for something else  (Danny Elfman Quotes) In some types of music I’m working out all the chords one bar at a time - the whole structure, because it’s about that. And there are other pieces which are really about - okay, the melody is going to start here and play through to here  (Danny Elfman Quotes) Oh see, first off you gotta realize - everything for me is a reconstruction or deconstruction. I would actually say deconstruction. Mission: Impossible would be the exception. That would be a reconstruction- deconstruction  (Danny Elfman Quotes) You have to nail the right tone because sometimes when you just see his films cold, you’re not quite sure. It’s the same in - I’m trying to think of other directors with a similar sense - david Lynch’s films, tim’s films, some of Cronenberg’s stuff  (Danny Elfman Quotes) For me, writing something in the spirit of Halloween is like Mother Teresa writing on charity and sacrifice. It’s just second nature to me  (Danny Elfman Quotes) So, it becomes an exercise in futility if you write something that does not express the film as the director wishes. It’s still their ball game. It’s their show. I think any successful composer learns how to dance around the director’s impulses.  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I don’t see myself necessarily having a burning desire to write a symphony  (Danny Elfman Quotes) It’s hard to get a film, you know, you need a very special film to be able to get that experimental. But, I would love to see that happen. I would love the opportunity to be more experimental than I am.  (Danny Elfman Quotes) You hear the beginning of a melody, you should kind of know it’s going to lead down this path. It should start feeling like a friend, like familiar.  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I’m trying to interpret the film through the director’s head, but it all comes out through me. So, a composer is kind of like a psychic medium.  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I really liked doing a number of the projects and directors, and etc., etc., I knew about half-way through that I would never be doing that again. It’s just not me. I really am happy as a part-time film composer, not a full-time film composer.  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I’m so happy dancing while the grim reaper cuts, cuts, cuts, but he can’t get me. I’m as clever as can be, and I’m very quick but don’t forget; we’ve only got so many tricks. no one lives forever.  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I like creating these rhythmic patterns. These interlocking rhythmic things are really fun  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I don’t see myself necessarily having a burning desire to write a symphony  (Danny Elfman Quotes) If there’s one thing I really love... it’s sad music  (Danny Elfman Quotes) You’ll never get me into a tux. Not until I’m dead and I have no choice because that’s what the undertaker put me in  (Danny Elfman Quotes) We don’t wanna leave you, but... But we got to... Wish this point right here, wish it could last forever right now! Yeah... It’s kinda like one big orgasm!  (Danny Elfman Quotes) That still has to be there. and so, it’s kind of an interesting question you brought up. Because, on the one hand, yeah, it’d be lovely. I certainly don’t see that happening. In fact, I see the opposite happening  (Danny Elfman Quotes) Sometimes I like them artificial and sometimes I like them real. and the reason is because sometimes I like a real close sound. and I like a very specific snare sound and I can’t get that in the big room  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I think that there’s a lot more freedom in the low budget, the independent films where, unfortunately, you don’t have the money, necessarily, to get the orchestras in there to play a lot of stuff. But, you have a lot more freedom, very often  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I think that’s one of the things that has always put me in kind of an odd niche. It’s that all of my understanding of orchestral music is via film, not via classical music like it’s supposed to be. To me it’s the same, it doesn’t make any difference  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I would have to say I might do some stuff, but it’s the film that’s appealing. I was raised on film. My musical experience is all via film, it’s not from classical music  (Danny Elfman Quotes) I’m trying to interpret the film through the director’s head, but it all comes out through me. So, a composer is kind of like a psychic medium  (Danny Elfman Quotes) It sounds really stupid, I hate making cosmic comments like this but, I just let it do what it wants to do  (Danny Elfman Quotes) It’s hard to get a film, you know, you need a very special film to be able to get that experimental. But, I would love to see that happen. I would love the opportunity to be more experimental than I am  (Danny Elfman Quotes) Most often the music does end up in the movie, and sometimes there’s a point where I wish that it wasn’t, just because I think the score would be more effective if there was less of it. But, again, that’s not my call  (Danny Elfman Quotes) So, it becomes an exercise in futility if you write something that does not express the film as the director wishes. It’s still their ball game. It’s their show. I think any successful composer learns how to dance around the director’s impulses  (Danny Elfman Quotes)
