From his days with Oingo Boingo, to being one of Tim Burton’s go to men, Danny elfman is no stranger to those of us who love the strange and are “strange and unusual”. And with the heat of summer comes a refreshing feeling of music, mayhem and more as Elfman is has been preparing the score to the all new CIRQUE du SOLEIL Show themed with a Hollywood feel IRIS

Danny Elfman has written some of the most hauntingly beautiful scores your will hear from Edward Scissorhands, Batman, Nightmare Before Christmas, and more. And this new venture is one that is taking him into a new realm he has yet to tap in to. In fact much of a Cirque show is fluid, based on an artists body movements, driving the crowd, the motion and the story forward much faster than a movie score.

The new show as described from its’ makers is “a lyrical, fanciful, kinetic foray into the seventh art. Bringing together dance, acrobatics, live video, filmed sequences and animation, the show takes spectators on a fantastic voyage through the history of cinema and its genres, taking them into the heart of the movie-making process. From illustration to animation, black and white to colour, silent films to talkies, fixed shots to swooping camera movements, spectators witness the poetic construction/deconstruction of this art as an object and as a way of transcending reality.”

With that being said, we can only imagine what Danny has planned in that creative twisted mind of his. IRIS opens on preview audiences in Hollywood, beginning July 21st 2011; opening day is Sept. 25th, 2011.
