Two-time Emmy Award winning composer (12-time Emmy nominated) Joseph LoDuca is no stranger to large orchestral action, adventure, fantasy, and thriller music. LoDuca composed the music for director Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead Trilogy, the Starz Entertainment series Spartacus (produced by Raimi/Tapert/Donen and Steven DeKnight), and Turner Network Television’s Leverage (for Dean Devlin).
In 2017 & 2018, his broadcast work includes Season 4 of TNT’s The Librarians, Season 3 of Ash v. Evil Dead for Starz, and Disjointed, a Netflix sitcom starring Kathy Bates (David Javerbaum, Chuck Lorre); four feature films–Bad Samaritan (Dean Devlin), Cult of Chucky (Don Mancini); Pleasuredome, an 80’s-themed musical, and Say My Name (Jay Stern). Upcoming for LoDuca is the Gabriel Iglesias’ new Netflix series, Mr Iglesias.
Joseph’s extensive work for television is highlighted by Xena: Warrior Princess (Emmy winner), Legend of the Seeker (Emmy winner), and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.
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 selected as the 2012 British entry for the Foreign Language Oscar. The project included song collaborations with pop artist Duffy and operatic baritone Bryn Terfel.
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 how to apply music to film. The sounds I discover when I work closely with a director inspire me and make my voice stronger.”
