Two-time Emmy Award winning composer Joseph LoDuca is no stranger to large orchestral action, adventure, fantasy, and thriller music. He has scored director Sam Raimiʼs Evil Dead Trilogy, and currently composes for the Starz Entertainment series Spartacus (produced by Raimi/Tapert/Donen and Steven DeKnight), and Turner Network Televisionʼs Leverage (for Dean Devlin). Internationally, films include Brotherhood of the Wolf (César nominee for Best Score) and Saint Ange.
LoDuca scored 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 current projects include 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 CBS pilot Super Fun Night and he is currently scoring Curse of Chucky for director Don Mancini.
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.”
