[India], August 31 (ANI): In a shocking move, the makers of 'The Simpsons' has dismissed show's longtime composer Alf Clausen.

According to Entertainment Weekly, a Simpsons producer informed him that he would not be scoring the show moving forward, and that a "different kind of music" would be used.

It is unclear at this point if the 35-piece orchestra that Clausen used for each episode will be retained.

Clausen joined the animated Fox comedy in 1990, early in season 2, and has scored the animated series ever since, earning a whopping 23 Emmy nominations for his joyful songs and soundscapes along the way, including a pair of wins in 1997 and 1998.

Till now the spokesperson of 'The Simpsons' has declined to comment on this matter. (ANI)
