Evil Dead 2 (Original Soundtrack) - (1987)
By the age of 15, LoDuca was opening for rock legends Bob Seger, Ted Nugent and the MC5 in smoky Detroit clubs and sneaking into Jeff Beck concerts. He was hooked. Onward to formal training in jazz and classical music, at the University of Michigan and in New York City. He plugged into the jazz culture. Submerged himself in music from around the world. Performed at jazz festivals in Europe. Was asked to tour with major recording artists, but he preferred composing - - it let him run freely among the disciplines without getting caught.
One day, a director friend said, "you know, you'd be good at scoring films." Within a few years he was awarded a Prime Time Emmy, eight nominations, numerous ASCAP awards and was named "Horror Film Composer of the Year." The director was Sam Raimi, and it all began with Evil Dead, Evil Dead II and Army of Darkness. It continues today with films like Boogeyman.
His credits also include the César-nominated score for the French international film Brotherhood of the Wolf, and the worldwide syndicated television series Xena: Warrior Princess.
