    The percussion concerto was recorded in August.

    Still dreaming – interview with Colin Currie

    The violin concerto was released the week after Dumbo. The percussion quartet was released the week after Doctor Strange 2. I think they plan these so that Elfman can do promo for both/capitialise on the hype from a big score release.

    Maybe it’ll be released around Beetlejuice 2?

    Elfman won for the title theme but The White Lotus won for original score. Lots of websites are incorrectly reporting that Elfman/Bacon won that. Maybe they got confused upon hearing that Elfman won.

    I wonder if Elfman’s hoping that he doesn’t win with either of his nominations tonight.

    A judge granted film and television composer Danny Elfman’s motion to order a woman to arbitrate rather than litigate her claims he breached the terms of a sexual harassment settlement agreement and owes $85,000.

    I can’t imagine it coming out in three weeks when there’s been no promo and, as far as I can see, the release date hasn’t been confirmed. Elfman’s the biggest name involved with the show, so it’d be an awful time to release.

    There’s been radio silence on all things Elfman since the allegations. He’s done shows, sure, but the limited press he did was conducted before they went public.

    We’ll see what happens with the hearing on 13th Dec.

    Elfman’s website has updated and has this now listed as an updated projected. Guessing he’s still on it (for now?).

    Grim.

    I don’t think I’ll be able to listen to his music until more comes out about this.

    One important piece of information that’s missing from most of the write-ups this time is that this lady and Abadi have the same lawyer.

    I was at the anniversary show last night. Incredible night.

    PotA was ditched for a short Wednesday suite. It sounded like a rock concert.

    Elfman looked pretty emotional at the audience’s response.

    I’d love a release of all the suites for this.

    I listened to some Abadi interviews last week when the site was down. I know that we will never really know what happened, but I wanted to know as much as possible. Elfman’s my favourite musician, but people very close to me have survived abuse and I always choose to believe victims first. She comes across as very intelligent, and the survivors group that she created sounds wonderful. All the points she makes about the industry are true.

    The interviews I listened to largely corroborate with what was written in the Rolling Stone article. Elfman isn’t referred to by name, obviously, but it’s clear from the context who she is talking about (someone she idolised, a huge name…). She lost contact with a lot of people, including friends, mentors and her therapist, who didn’t believe her. (The Rolling Stone article mentions that some of Adabi’s closest friends didn’t believe her, and they are referred to here.) But her career soon took off in a positive way once she removed herself from the situation. (I noticed on IMDB that she’s worked with Raimi’s wife twice and appeared in Oz, so I can’t help but wonder if that is a lost contact.)

    One thing did jump out. In one interview, she alleges that her abuser has done this to ‘many’ other women, specifying it happened to a woman in the 1990s. She says this at 32:35 in the following interview: https://www.ellajarmanpinto.com/beyond-the-chameleon/nomi-abadi

    She knows that if the story were to break, there are lot of texts messages that will be used against her as it took her a long time to realise she was being abused.

    However, in a subsequent interview, she alleges that she doesn’t know if her abuser has done this to any other women. She says this at 47:55 in the following interview: https://empoweredartistcollective.podbean.com/e/57-composing-for-film-tv-with-nomi-abadi/

    So yeah, it’s all very messy.

    Even if Elfman were to be able to prove that no abuse took place, he still failed to make payments that he agreed to make. I don’t know legal matters, but that sounds like a hard case to win to me. I guess we’ll have to wait.

    Whenever I hit submit, the page just reloads without my message.

    Is there a word limit maybe? It is very long. 😄

    Ryan, I’ve tried to post a (quite lengthy) post in the harassment thread. It’s failed four times. Any ideas what might be going on?

    I’m with you. Elfman’s response reads really badly. I can’t believe his people approved that.

    He has shows in the next week. We’ll see if they go ahead.

    Such an awful situation.

    Really surprised by the lack of conversation about this online (not just here).

    I wonder if this affects Elfman’s upcoming projects. If he gets kicked off Beetlejuice 2, he’s probably finished.

    Elfman got two Emmy nominations today. One for the Main Title and one shared with Chris Bacon for the second episode.

    I’m glad that they submitted the second episode. The score for the first episode is the best, but it’s the only one that Chris Bacon doesn’t have a ‘Music By’ credit on. I figured they would’ve went for that episode just because Elfman’s a big name. It’s right that, if they were going to get a nomination, it was together.

    Burton got a director nomination, too.

    Elfman’s theme is used liberally once Keaton enters the movie. Lots of cool versions. I thought Wallfisch did a good job. The mixing is really obnoxious though and makes for a weirdly unpleasant listen.

    As much as I love Keaton in this role and I did get a kick out of seeing him, he’s not a character as much as a plot device. He never once felt like a living, breathing person. This isn’t the reclusive weirdo from Burton’s movies even though he’s still reclusive and a weirdo. I dunno. It all felt very insincere.

    I enjoyed the movie a lot more before all the multiverse stuff started.

    I’m halfway through the audiobook of the book this is based on – Memory – and it is beyond grim. Hard to imagine the score for it, but I’m thinking Girl on the Train as the main character is suffering from memory loss.

    I wonder what that classical trio is about. Another commission? Seems a bit random.

    Do you think a release of 2 is possible?
