    In this interview with classicfm.com, Danny talks about the DARK SHADOWS, his accidental entry into composing, his hope to record RABBIT this year and, briefly at the end, a chamber piece for piano and percussion he would like to start work on… http://www.classicfm.com/music-news/interviews/danny-elfmans-accidental-movie-career/

    How about a chamber piece based on DARK SHADOWS? :) Danny could perform the synths live!

    Thanks for that! Great news about the chamber piece and a possible RABBIT recording. The list of unreleased stuff is piling up.

    That was last year. Hopefully it’s still in the works.

    Ah, didn’t catch the date there. So no news of this since last year, then.

    Fun, super relaxed 90-minute interview between Elfman and fellow horror buffs on “The Boo Crew”. Amidst the typical (but a little more in-depth) biography/process topics are a great opening bumper with everyone goofing off, Elfman mentioning his favorite recent horror scores, his fessing up to the Wendy Carlos homage in DARK SHADOWS, and at just after the 1hr 11 min mark, he mentions a new concert work likely to debut next year scored for “chamber orchestra, 12-16 female singers, two percussion, two electric guitars, bass and drum”!

    Just finished this up tonight, thanks for sharing the link before I could! Perhaps Elfman’s best interview? It seems like he could have talked forever.
