Danny Elfman’s Career and Excitement for Performances

Elfman shared that he is splitting his time between creating different kinds of music, including classical, rock and roll, and “monster music” for a theme park in Orlando. He is also excited to perform his music for the Netflix series Wednesday, which he has composed the score for and is part of the Elfman-Burton, Burton-Elfman thing they created.
