A group for people who appreciate one of the best, if not the best, living composer of contemporary classical music for film, opera, musical and more. HE IS AWESOME lol.

Elliot Goldenthal (born May 2, 1954 in Brooklyn, New York City) is an acclaimed Oscar and Golden Globe winning American composer of contemporary classical music. He was a student of Aaron Copland and John Corigliano, and is best known for his ability to blend various musical styles and techniques in original and inventive ways. Atonal and brutal in his action music, sometimes in underscore and tends to use very fast French horn bending tones/whining; although Goldenthal himself has said that he doesn't "hear" atonal and tonal, rather "...I don't have any differentiation in my head between tonal and atonal, I either hear melody or I hear sonority — I don't hear atonal or tonal so much."

Elliot Goldenthal has often been called the "thinking mans composer" and a generally more cerebral choice for film makers and fans of film music alike. He is known for his often intense experimentation and willingness to try new and unconventional techniques and processes. This experimental approach has lead him to score movies in almost every genre from horror to action to Shakespeare adaptations; the only type of film he has not yet scored is comedy but at the same time he has composed comedic motifs for several films such as Demolition Man which are considered tongue-in-cheek types of movies in the first place. And it is this openness to try his hand at anything which has gained him a lot of respect in the music and film communities and with fans. He is not as well known, or popular, as other film composers such as the "household names" John Williams or Hans Zimmer but he is widely appreciated among film score fans for his sheer musical abilities and distinctive style; a style, which though artistically appreciated among film music enthusiasts, some have said can be too experimental or inaccessible to the mainstream listener because of Goldenthals passion for defying the norms of contemporary classical music.

    Can't wait to hear his new score for Julie Taymor's "The Tempest"! Should be amazing, if "Titus" (1999) is anything to go by.

    Actually you can connect Elliot with Yoko Kanno too... If you have listened to Genesis of Aquarion and Turn A Gundam OSTs you know the reason :)
