"9" Score Update

Collaborators Danny Elfman and Deborah Lurie
during a recording session for Deep Sea 3D IMAX (2006)

Previously, it was announced by Apple that Danny Elfman would do the score for the upcoming post-apocalyptic, Tim Burton-produced animated feature 9 on his own. It turns out that that information was partly accurate.

Deborah Lurie, a frequent collaborator of Elfman, just finished scoring and recording the music for the upcoming animated film. Elfman supplied some main themes for Lurie to expand upon.

Lurie and Elfman both composed the music for the nature documentary Deep Sea 3D IMAX in 2006. She also supplied additional music for 2008's Wanted, which was directed by 9-producer Timur Bekmambatov. Lurie has also worked on Elfman's orchestrations for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Charlotte's Web, and Hellboy II: The Golden Army.

Elfman is currently working on the scores for Terminator IV, The Wolfman, and, in the near future, Alice in Wonderland.

9, directed by Shane Acker, will be released on September 9th, 2009.
