ASCAP to honor Badalamenti, Clausen

'Twin Peaks' composer gets Henry Mancini Award; 'Simpsons' artist gets Golden Note

Angelo Badalamenti, the composer best known for his musical collaborations with David Lynch, and Alf Clausen, the man behind “The Simpsons” music, will be will be honored at this year’s ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards.

Badalamenti will receive the Henry Mancini Award that recognizes a composer’s achievements in film and TV music. His work includes collaborations with recording artists such as David Bowie, Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson, as well as themes for TV series such as “Twin Peaks and “Inside the Actors Studio.” Past recipients of this award include Quincy Jones, Randy Newman and Hans Zimmer.

Clausen will be presented with the Golden Note Award, given to songwriters, composers and artists with significant career milestones, with previous honorees including Garth Brooks, Stevie Wonder and Tom Petty. Clausen, best known for scoring “The Simpsons,” has composed for shows such as “The Mary Tyler Moore Variety Hour” and “Moonlighting,” along with pics such as “Half-Baked,” “Splash” and “Ferris Beuller’s Day off.”

“Angelo’s musical contributions to film and television are of the highest artistic order,” said ASCAP prexy and chairman Paul Williams. “And Alf Clausen’s decades of scores for ‘The Simpsons’ and other TV programs and films are as endlessly inventive as the imaginations of the shows’ writers and animators.”

The 26th annual ASCAP Film and Television Music Awards will take place on June 23 at the Beverly Hilton.
