Danny Elfman to Receive Maestro Award :
Danny Elfman will receive the Maestro Award at the Billboard/Hollywood Reporter Film and TV Music Conference on Oct. 25 at the W Hotel in Hollywood. Originally a New Wave rock star with the seminal band Oingo Boingo, Elfman was one of the first rock composers to make a successful leap to the world of film music. THR film critic Todd McCarthy will give the award and host a Q&A with Elfman and Hitchcock director Sacha Gervasi. Elfman is the ideal composer for Hitchcock, since one of his chief influences is Hitchcock's frequent composer Bernard Herrmann, whose score for Psycho Elfman "interpreted" for Van Sant's remake. The Q&A will address not only Hitchcock but Elfman's other award-contender movies, David O. Russell's Silver Linings Playbook, Gus Van Sant's Promised Land, and Burton's Frankenweenie. Previous recipients of the Maestro Award include Alan Menken, Thomas Newman, Hans Zimmer and Marvin Hamlisch.
