Two-time Emmy Award winning composer Joseph LoDuca is no stranger to large orchestral action, adventure, fantasy, and thriller music. LoDuca composed the music for director Sam Raimiʼs Evil Dead Trilogy, the Starz Entertainment series Spartacus (produced by Raimi/Tapert/Donen and Steven DeKnight), and Turner Network Televisionʼs Leverage (for Dean Devlin). Internationally, his films include Brotherhood of the Wolf (César nominee for Best Score) and Saint Ange.
LoDuca also scored the film Patagonia (directed by Marc Evans), which was chosen as the 2012 British entry for the Foreign Language Oscar. It also resulted in song collaborations with pop artist Duffy and operatic baritone Bryn Terfel. Other recent work includes Freaky Deaky (directed by Charles Matthau, starring Christian Slater). Josephʼs extensive work for television is highlighted by Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, The Legend of the Seeker (Emmy winner), and Xena: Warrior Princess (Emmy winner). Recently Joe composed the score for the ABC pilot Super Fun Night, Curse of Chucky for director Don Mancini, Voltage Pictures’ Pay the Ghost and Burying The Ex for director Joe Dante. Recently, LoDuca scored for the television adaptation Ash Vs. The Evil Dead for Sam Raimi and Starz!
His varied career features operettas, musicals and theme songs, which have earned him five of his twelve Emmy nominations. He sums it all up: “I understand the language of music and how to apply it to film. The sounds I discover every time I work closely with a director inspire me, and make my voice stronger.”
