The Show Will Go on for ‘Simpsons’ Composer Alf Clausen
Although two-time Emmy winner Alf Clausen was let go as the composer for ‘The Simpsons’ after 27 years, producers are vowing he will still play a role in the long-running Fox animated series, quoting
“We tremendously value Alf Clausen’s contributions to ‘The Simpsons’ and he will continue to have an ongoing role in the show. We remain committed to the finest in music for ‘The Simpsons,’ absolutely including orchestral,” read a statement issued Thursday that was attributed to “the producers of ‘The Simpsons.’ ” “This is the part where we would make a joke but neither Alf’s work nor the music of ‘The Simpsons’ is treated as anything but seriously by us.”
The news of Clausen’s firing, which was announced on Wednesday, made many ‘Simpsons’ fans very angry and caused swift reactions in Hollywood via Twitter.
