The Zimpsons?

Crazy-ass scoring assignment of the year: Hans Zimmer handling the big-screen The Simpsons. Apparently FOX has passed over series workhorse Alf Clausen, and signed up The Zim. While it may not move the filmmakers to reconsider their choice, a fan petition has started to raise some hell.

Scoremagacine has a new interview with composer John Scott on their website.

Daniel Schweiger talks with former Tangerine Dream-er Paul Haslinger for his podcast On The Score at Film Music Radio.
