Danny Elfman scores Epic

Posted on July 10, 2013 by Dan Goldwasser

This past February, Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman recorded his music for Epic, the latest CGI animated feature from Chris Wedge, director of Ice Age and Rio. Elfman’s thematic orchestral score was performed with a 95-piece orchestra and 44-voice choir at 20th Century Fox’s Newman scoring stage. ScoringSessions.com is excited to bring our readers photos from the sessions!
