Figured I’d start a thread on Elfman’s next classical work, which is due to premiere this fall.
I’ve been listening to Philip Glass’ work with them, and it’s really up my street.July 20, 2019 at 8:04 am #98990

BIG NEWS I just added a page to my website for upcoming new concert commissions. I can’t even describe how much I’m excited about beginning these new challenges. . First off, I just finished a 4-movement, all percussion composition that was commissioned by the Third Coast Percussion Quartet. It premieres on October 10th at a great music festival in Big Sur called the “Days and Nights Festival” that composer Philip Glass hosts each year. My new, yet-to-be-named, composition will play alongside a recent composition called “Perpetulum” that Mr. Glass wrote for Third Coast Percussion as well—his first piece for percussion ensemble. If any of you have heard me talk about my feelings about 20th century composition, you’ll know that Philip Glass had a very big influence on me and is a composer I have incredibly high regard for. I’m absolutely thrilled to be in such great company. For more info go to the website link in my bio > CONCERT WORK > NEW COMMISSIONS . In the next year I begin 3 new commissions that I’ll describe in more detail. I have no doubt these will be amongst, if not THE, greatest challenges of my life. That is, if they don’t kill me first. . #thirdcoastpercussion #philipglass #daysandnightsfeltival #dannyelfmancommissions

Pre-concert talk with Elfman and Glass.
If Dolittle really starts recording on the 11th, that’s going to be some bad jetlag.September 29, 2019 at 8:38 am #99038View this post on Instagram

Third Coast Percussion will livestream a performance of this next week.May 25, 2020 at 12:30 am #99172May 28, 2020 at 10:12 pm #99173May 29, 2020 at 11:40 am #99174
Oh damn, I did not think of the timezone difference. I was planning to record it but oh well…
I hope they will publish it on their YouTube account.May 29, 2020 at 12:22 pm #99176
I think they keep it uploaded.
If not, I was able to download the original upload of the entire performance and could send it your way.
(I would/will obviously buy a/the proper release.)May 30, 2020 at 12:30 am #99177rkeaveneyKeymaster
It’s live right now:May 31, 2020 at 10:06 am #99181boingomusicParticipant
I missed it. I thought it would stay online…
Has anyone recorded it? If so, maybe a Dropbox link or a Wetransfer link could be nice 🤓May 31, 2020 at 1:04 pm #991829fingeredElfParticipantJune 3, 2020 at 7:38 pm #99183
Thanks !June 4, 2020 at 7:07 am #99184boingomusicParticipant
Thank you so much 9fingeredElf !
So, Danny’s planning a solo album, with some very aggressive music !!!
He says he’s going to record this with his Coachella band.
I still feel kind of bad for the rest of the Boingo band. They’ve been doing their best to keep the Boingo spirit alive for the past 15 years. Steve Bartek still plays with them. And Danny kept saying he couldn’t do it because of his hearing loss. And now, he records an album with new material, goes back on stage at Coachella, but still chooses to ignore his ex-band, except for Steve who’s in the middle of all this, playing with Danny, but still performing with the Boingo former members.
I don’t understand why he’s so opposed to bringing them back, specially when he plans to perform old Boingo songs.
I mean… It’s obvious it would please the fans, and I know Vatos, Phipps, Avila and the rest of the band would be more than HAPPY to do it.July 7, 2020 at 9:28 pm #99200ThorParticipant
Yes, boingomusic, that is indeed bizarre. Lots of bands have internal strife and intrigue, but I always got the impression that Boingo was a well-knit group. I wonder why he’s keeping the other band members out of it? Perhaps things will change between now and when Coachella finally happens next year.November 25, 2020 at 6:46 pm #99280
